The bird, nicknamed ‪#‎Narcopaloma‬ or ‪#‎NarcoPigeon‬, was allegedly seen by a guard landing in the courtyard of the medium-security facility with a small zipped up pouch tied to its body.
Authorities believe that the pigeon may have been trained to act as a courier by an inmate at Le Reforma, which is Costa Rica’s biggest prison, according to Sky News.

NarcoPigeon was “arrested” and later taken to a zoo where it will remain caged.

The drugs reportedly had a street value of around $281.
