Canadians catch a pigeon trying to smuggle drugs in a backpack into the country. A meth pigeon.
Late last December, officers at Pacific Institution in Abbotsford, B.C., spotted a pigeon in one of the fenced inmate unit yards. But this was no ordinary jail yard pigeon--this one was wearing what appeared to be a tiny backpack.
The officers cornered the bird and managed to get the tiny package off of it, which actually contained 30 grams of crystal meth. Meaning an inmate had to spend months training the pigeon to recognize their jail cell as its home so it could be used to smuggle drugs inside.
Not gonna lie, I'm fairly impressed by the creativity and dedication. Crystal meth? Very bad. But training a pigeon to be your best friend and even dodge security to bring you presents, albeit illegal ones? Very neat.
As bizarre as this story is, it's actually happened a few times in recent years. In 2017, a pigeon in Kuwait was caught carrying drugs near the Iraq border. In 2015, a pigeon was caught smuggling drugs into a Costa Rica prison.

The jail system recently dealt with a similar drone problem. Drones were being used to deliver illicit substances and weapons to inmates. After the jail solved that issue, it seems prisoners took to more old-fashioned methods for getting their fix-- and by "old-fashioned," I mean reverting back to the Roman Empire.
Homing pigeons were once used to carry messages and parcels back and forth due to their navigation skills and ability to fly hundreds of miles per day. In 1903, a German apothecary used carrier pigeons to deliver much-needed medication. Pigeons were also used extensively during World Wars I and II for wartime messages. One pigeon was given an award for delivering 12 important messages for the U.S. Army Signal Corps despite being heavily injured.
And now, in the year of our Lord 2023, these incredible animals are being used to deliver hard drugs to incarcerated meth heads. It makes sense, honestly.
