Drug-smuggling pigeon carrying 178 party pills caught by Kuwaiti officials

Kuwaiti customs officials caught a pigeon carrying 178 pills in a tiny backpack into the country.

The officials seized the pigeon close to the customs building in Abdali near the country’s border with Iraq, according to al-Rai.

The drugs were apparently a type of ketamine, a drug used to prevent pain but is also known as an illegal party drug, according to the BBC.

Customs officials were reportedly aware that pigeons were being used as drug smugglers, but this is the first time a bird was caught.

This is not the first time pigeons have been used to carry in paraphernalia. In Costa Rica, prison guards captured a pigeon carrying cocaine and cannabis in 2015.
