Drug-running cat caught smuggling pot into Moldovan prison

This cat was caught smuggling pot into a Moldovan prison after guards noticed it routinely popping in and out through a hole in the prison's fence.

CHISINAU, Moldova – A cat has been busted for smuggling pot into a prison in Moldova.

Guards became suspicious about the feline, which routinely entered and left the prison through a hole in a fence, when they noticed its odd collar. On closer inspection, they found two packets of marijuana attached to it.
The Department of Penitentiary Institutions said Friday that someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison.
