According to a report by Dailymail, pictures of the pigeon after its ‘arrest’ show the the grey bird and the bag on its back, and once the backpack was opened up, close to 200 small, white pills were seen spilling out.
The bird which was sent by traffickers, had reportedly began its smuggling route in Iraq and was tracked by authorities on its way to Kuwait.
The bird was caught by authorities after being spotted flying around an inner-city office block.
The plight of the pigeon has captured the attention of the internet, with users calling it a ‘flight risk’ and urging authorities not to grant it bail.
