Cops catch pigeon with backpack of drugs

A homing pigeon was caught trying to smuggle drugs into Kuwait, according to local news reports.

Local authorities tracked the foul fowl’s flight through neighboring Iraq, then nabbed it on the border with a tiny backpack containing 178 pills, Al Arabiya reports.

It wasn’t immediately clear exactly what kind of pills the bird was packing.

This isn’t the first pigeon nabbed for narcotics smuggling — in 2015, guards at a Costa Rican prison caught a literal jail bird flying cocaine and weed into the slammer.
