Kuwaiti customs seized 178 pills wrapped around a homing pigeon.

The department’s employees tracked a homing pigeon that was coming from Iraq and finally caught it above a building near the customs’ department, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai reported.

Homing pigeons were used in the past to carry messages as messenger pigeons and they crossed a distance of approximately 100 miles.

At first they only delivered messages but after training, man taught them how to deliver messages back and forth more than once a day.
