Aleyda Mendez Hernandez, in charge of the animal rescue centre, said the pigeon cannot be released, one of the main reasons is that it is accustomed to being fed by a person and no one knows who he or she is.

“We have it under observation. We do not see any problems. It has not eaten anything, but that is a matter of time, it is a little nervous given all that has happened and has minor burns, caused by the pouch,” said the expert.

The pigeon was found near one of the medium security blcoks, carrying 14 grams of cocaine and 14 grams of marijuana in the specially made pouch.

It is believed the bird was being used for making a delivery to the prison or perhaps in an area near the prison, but got tired and landed in the prison block.
