KT - There was a time when pigeons were used to deliver messages across countries in the absence of faster means of communication.

But in the contemporary times, the same bird is being used for criminal purposes. In Kuwait, a homing pigeon was caught transporting drugs by custom officials.

Around 178 pills were found wrapped around the bird that reportedly came from Iraq and was being tracked by the customs department.

According to Al Arabiya, the pigeon was caught by the officials above a building near their office.


Look at this cute little guy and hit cute little birdy backback. I just want to pinch his little bird cheeks. It’s freaking adorable how he’s flying around with a napsack full of ecstasy on his back.

But on a more serious note, we’ve heard for years about the problems in the inner city schools, and this hits very close to home. This guy thought his mom packed up his backpack with school supplies, maybe a nice little PB&J with a Capri Sun, and next thing he knew he was being nabbed by the bird cops because he was carrying a bag full of pills on his back. Very sad. I don’t know what it’s going to take to clean up the bird communities, but it’s scary to think the youth are this heavily involved, being used as pill runners. And I can see in his eyes that he’s no narc, so he’ll probably fly back to his broken down nest and face whatever punishment awaits him. I’m no expert in bird law, but something has to be done about this before it’s too late.
