Posted by: Fawad Khan, Uploaded: 7th January 2013



A cat has been taken under custody in the grounds of a prison in Brazil with smuggled goods for prisoners strapped to its body with tape.

The white cat, was detained whilst crossing the main prison gate.

The incident occurred at a jail in Arapiraca city, 155 miles south west of Recife in Alagoas state. The confiscated goods included a mobile phone and charger, earphones, drill bits and a few files. The cat was then taken to a local animal centre.

A prison spokesperson was quoted by local paper Estado de S. Paulo as saying: “It’s tough to find out who’s responsible for the action as the cat doesn’t speak.”

Officials said the items could be used to effect a means of escape or for communicating with criminals on the outside.

The incident took place at New Year, but the photo has only recently been released.
