A pigeon smuggling cocaine and cannabis into a prison in Costa Rica have been caught.
The bird was seen landing in the central concourse of the medium security La Reforma jail, in San Rafael de Alajuela, where it was taken into custody.
The drugs were contained in a small zipped up pouch strapped to the animal's chest.
About 14g of cocaine and at least the same amount of cannabis were inside wrapped in plastic.
Prison officials said they believe the drugs were destined for use by an inmate who may have trained the pigeon to act as a courier.
