When they aren’t hanging in New York City leaving presents on our windshields, some pigeons are apparently being trained to fly drugs into prisons. Now one of them has been caught in the act.

Prison guards at the La Reforma Penitentia, in San Jose, Costa Rica captured a pigeon that was sporting an adorable tiny fanny pack with an adorable amount of drugs: 14 grams of cocaine and 14 grams of marijuana. But look at his pouch. How can you be upset at it?

Prison director Paul Bertozzi stated “They observed the bulge on the animal so they captured it and confirmed that it carried a bag with zipper – and the drugs were inside… It seems the dove was trained for it.”

You do the crime, you do the time, and that sneaky, diseased ball of fun will be locked up for 40 days so that it doesn’t head back to the person who sent it. Probably this lady.
