Drug-smuggling pigeon thrown behind bars

Drug-smuggling pigeon thrown behind bars
August 21, 2008 - news.com.au

BOSNIAN police have impounded a pigeon after discovering prisoners used it to smuggle drugs into one of the country's highest security jails, an official said today.

"The guards suspected the animal might be involved in drug smuggling once they noticed four prisoners visibly intoxicated shortly after the pigeon landed on a prison window," Zenica prison official Josip Pojavnik said.

All four inmates had tested positive for heroin, said Mr Pojavnik, adding disciplinary proceedings had been launched against the inmates.

The drugs had probably been stuffed into tiny bags attached to the legs of the carrier pigeon, which one of the prisoners had previously been allowed to keep as a pet in his cell, he said.

"We suspect that the pigeon carried the drugs from Tuzla," a town around 70km north-east of Zenica in central Bosnia, he said.

The pigeon had been taken into custody by police, who have launched an investigation aimed at identifying those who had loaded it up with the drugs.

"We do not know what to do with the pigeon, but for the time being it will remain behind bars," Mr Pojavnik said.

The incident had prompted the prison administration to consider closing down a prisoner pigeon-breeding project established in a ward of the jail as part of a rehabilitation program.

Mr Pojavnik insisted those birds had not been involved in the incident.

A similar case of carrier pigeons being used by prisoners was reportedly uncovered earlier this year at a jail in Brazil, where the birds were being used to deliver drugs and even mobile telephones.

haha, what an amazing backfire.
You've got to admire the ingenuity and resourcefulness of these prisoners. They've only got pigeons to work with and they manage to train them to bring them drugs from 70km away.

The hilarious thing is that if they let the pigeon go and just FOLLOWED IT HOME, they wouldn't need to launch an investigation, because the bird would just fly right to the source...silly piggies

First you've got to play good cop/bad cop with the pigeon and if it still doesn't talk, then threaten it with life imprisonment and just wait it out. It'll talk. :mad:

The pigeon was suspected to have ties with al-Qaida drug smuggling operations and was taken to the Guantanamo Bay prison facility. Further enhanced 'not-torture' interrogation will be conducted to verify the guilt of the pigeon preceding the closed military trial.

70 km is far as shit for a pigeon to fly.

I remember being in DARE when i was much younger and some of the stories they would tell you are not only ridiculous, but completely untrue. One story was that a woman was on LSD and thought her infant was a turkey so she baked it in the oven. Now I look back and think thats hilarious, but at the time I guess it scared me.
