Drug-smuggling pigeon

A few weeks ago, we heard news of a vulture accused of spying on Saudi Arabia. Now, Colombian police nabbed a pigeon they think was on its way to smuggle weed and cocaine paste into a Bucaramanga prison. Apparently, the package was too heavy for the bird. From the BBC:

"We found the bird about a block away from the prison trying to fly over with a package, but due to the excess weight it could not accomplish its mission," said Bucaramanga police commander Jose Angel Mendoza…

Police said carrier pigeons had been used in the past to smuggle mobile phone Sim cards into the jail.
