Bosnia: A pigeon driver of heroin.

In August 2009, at the prison in Zenica in Bosnia, 50 km from Sarajevo, a pigeon lands on the bars of a window every night. Its owner runs a small package attached to his leg and attaches a small acknowledgment before sending the pigeon to its final destination.

Nothing unusual until the prison guards found that four inmates behave like drug addicts and decide to send them to the laboratory for a medical examination. No doubt they are under the influence of heroin, said the official Josip Pojavnik.

Following the investigation, it appears that the pigeon was on the route between Tuzla and Zenica located about 70 km in central Bosnia to deliver drugs.
"An investigation is underway to know the identity of those who provide drugs and instructed the pigeon. We do not know what to do with the pigeon, but for now, he will remain behind bars," said the director of prison.
This incident led to the closure of a pigeon inside the prison, set up as part of the rehabilitation program for prisoners, complained that the bird did not come either.
Similar cases of pigeons deliverymen were held in Brazil. The birds were used to supply drugs, medicines and even mobile phones!

The pigeons are a breed of birds bred specifically for their ability to transport small cargo and mail.
These birds were used already in the Middle Ages, especially during the wars and even now in many prisons.

The Bosnian Serb Republika Srpska or the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the two entities making up Bosnia and Herzegovina. It had 1,503,596 inhabitants in 2006 33% of the population of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
