Live Turkeys Stuffed with Cocaine

Officials acting on a tip searched a bus in Tarapoto, Peru for cocaine. They had been alerted that the cocaine was in a crate of turkeys, but they didn’t see any. However, the two live turkeys appeared bloated. Police chief Otero Gonzalez said the turkeys had been surgically implanted.

“Lifting up the feathers of the bird, in the chest area, police detected a handmade seam,” he said.

A vet extracted 11 oval-shaped plastic capsules containing 1.9 kilograms (4.2 pounds) of cocaine from one turkey.

A further 17 capsules with 2.9 kilograms (6.4 pounds) were recovered from the other, he said.

The turkeys survived the surgery to remove the cocaine and are recovering. Link -via Arbroath
