If NarcoPaloma and Pizza Rat had a baby, it would be NarcoRatón, the newest drug smuggling animal. In Brazil’s Barra da Grota prison, a rodent was used to move drugs through the prison. A small bag of drugs was tied to its tail; 29 packets of marijuana and 23 of cocaine were found.

“They attached a hook to the mouse’s tail and then used it to carry the drugs and other goods from one cell to another,” Barra da Gota Director Gean Carlos Gomes said, according to The Telegraph. “When the animal arrived at its destination, the prisoner took the mouse and removed the hook from its tail.”

They haven’t figured out who was behind NarcoRatón yet, but guards are going through security footage to find out.

Unlike NarcoPaloma, NarcoRatón was released to the wilderness.
