As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Argentinean dealers arrested for using pigeons to distribute marijuana


Drug dealers in Argentina were allegedly using carrier pigeons to deliver 13-gram packages of marijuana to customers in the region.

Bird-brained drug dealers in Argentina have been busted using carrier pigeons to get their customers high.

A trio of dope sellers in the Lomas de Zamora district of Buenos Aires allegedly tied up to 13 grams of pot around their winged messengers' necks to make around 20 deliveries a day.

Cops rumbled the small-time ring's ruse after stumbling across a lost white dove carrying a small package packed with illegal substances.


"It was released and we were able to follow it," a police spokesman told ABC. "Then it was a question of waiting and following again."
