Drug traffickers now using puppies to smuggle drugs

Eyewitness News
(New York-WABC, February 1, 2006) - Drug enforcement agents say they discovered a very new and disturbing method being used by some heroin traffickers.

Ten puppies, including Labrador retrievers, were rescued during a 2005 raid on a farm in Colombia, the DEA said while announcing recent arrests in the two-year investigation.
A New York veterinarian had stitched 14 packets containing about 3 kilograms of heroin -- worth roughly $200,000 wholesale -- into the bellies of six pups. Three of the doggies later died from infection after the drugs were removed.

The surviving dogs "are still alive and well, we're told," said John P. Gilbride, head of the DEA's New York office.

Colombian police said they adopted three dogs, one of which was being trained to sniff for drugs.

DEA investigators said they believe the drug ring, based in Medellin, Colombia, used the puppies and other methods to conceal millions of dollars in heroin on commercial flights into New York City for distribution throughout the East Coast.

It was unclear how many dogs were used in the scheme, nor did investigators know their fate once they arrived on U.S. soil.

Gilbride: "I think it's outrageous and heinous that they'd use small, innocent puppies in this way. ... It just demonstrates what lengths drugs dealers will go to get drugs into the country."

The puppy implants were the traffickers' inhumane take on the common practice of paying people to swallow dozens of drug-packed pellets made with condoms or latex glove fingers wrapped in tape. The couriers, called "swallowers," then take flights to U.S. cities, where they expel the drugs by going to the bathroom.

Authorities said swallowers -- who risk fatal overdoses if the pellets rupture in their stomachs -- also were part of the heroin operation. Drugs also were concealed in body creams and aerosol cans and were sewn into the linings of purses and luggage.

Colombia's national police gave a slightly different account of the investigation, describing two raids, with the second, on Wednesday, involving 20 arrests. They said they discovered a clandestine clinic where veterinarians had implanted six dogs with a total of 3 kilograms of heroin.

Oh yeah, I've been to a number of museums in Europe, they all have at least one room devoted to torture. In Amsterdam (or maybe Rotterdam) they even have a torture museum.

When they decided that you were going to confess, they figured out ways to make you confess.

How did those people sleep at night?

I heard on the news this morning that three of the pups died while in surgery to remove the heroin packets, and one of the surviving pups has been adopted by a DEA agent.
