In announcing 30 new arrests made against Colombian drug smugglers Wednesday, the DEA revealed that 10 puppies had been surgically implanted with a total of 3 kg of heroin in an effort to smuggle the drug into the U.S. on commercial flights into New York. The dogs, and human drug swallowers, were reportedly used to smuggle millions of dollars in liquid heroin into the country for distribution on the East Coast.
Colombian smugglers turned puppies into drug mules by surgically implanting them with packets of liquid heroin, authorities said.

Investigators believe the ring used the dogs, as well as people who swallowed the drugs, to conceal millions of dollars of heroin on commercial flights into New York for distribution on the East Coast.

Ten puppies, including Labrador retrievers, were rescued during a 2005 raid on a farm in Colombia, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said Wednesday, while announcing more than 30 arrests.

A veterinarian had stitched a total of 3 kilograms of heroin into the bellies of six pups. Three died from infections after the drugs were removed.

This is another example of the lengths drug rings will go to in order to serve the demand for heroin in the U.S., and cash in on the aggressive addiction of the opiate culture. They have no conscience, they have no morals, and they have no qualms about the destruction and misery they are causing.

this should come as no surprise. This is merely another example of the fact that druggies are the lowest form of life on earth. Innocent little puppies?
God condemns to hell anyone who corrupts such innocence. I believe this and I'm not even particularly religious.

This has already been covered on ATS. It can be found here

Using dogs for drugs transportation is an absolute disgrace!

Shame on them
