(Newser) – Prison guards in Moldova recently busted a drug smuggler ... a feline drug smuggler. Guards became suspicious about the cat, 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 today that someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison.

This wasn't a first regarding cat couriers at lockups: In June, guards caught a cat carrying cellphones and chargers taped to its belly to inmates in Penal Colony No. 1 near the city of Syktyvkar in northern Russia.
