Remember New York’s “Pizza Rat”?

This little rodent was living the NYC dream… just carrying a slice of pizza while it made its way down to the subway.
Well, this rat has been living an entirely different reality.
No pizza. No fast, convenient public transportation.
This rat was SMUGGLING DRUGS in a Brazilian jail.
Inmates in the Barra da Grota prison in Recife, Brazil trained the rat to go from one cell to another carrying drugs. According to El Mundo, the rat was equipped with a small hook tied to its tail that carried tiny bags of drugs. After realizing the rat was pushing weight, guards discovered 29 small packets of marijuana and 23 packets of cocaine in the prison.
Sounds outrageous until you see how well-behaved this rat is…
You’re probably thinking, “That is SO fake. It doesn’t even move.” Think again:
After being detained by prison guards, the rat was not charged with any crimes. It was released outside of the jail and given an opportunity to live its life on the straight and narrow.
