Unfortunately, you read that right. Kuwaiti customs has captured a pigeon wearing a tiny rucksack carrying 200 ecstasy pills.

The department tracked down the drug smuggling homing pigeon coming in from Iraq and caught it close by the custom’s department.

Homing pigeons were used in the past to deliver important messages but these drug traffickers have trained this one to deliver something a little more… dodgy.

Despite the underlying seriousness of the crime, the people of Twitter have certainly seen the funny side of the unusual situation.
