Cat tries to smuggle mobile phone into Brazilian prison - Mirror Online (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/cat-tries-to-smuggle-mobile-phone-1520770)

I wonder if they trained it to go shopping too.
Could never happen in the UK.

They said that the cat couldn't answer the question "for whom were you bringing this contraband into prison". Should have sent it an SMS as it was carrying it's own mobile....

A man was caught recently trying to smuggle a mobile phone and charger into Castle Huntly open prison near Dundee. The article said he had them concealed in a "body cavity".

The phone I can just about imagine, but a charger with a UK, 3 prong plug!?

Since the "3 pin plug" is more commonly incorporated into the charger, I reckon it would have brought a tear to his eye

It's tough to find out who's responsible for the action as the cat doesn't speak.from the BBC quoting a prison official.

I'm really no expert on body cavities, couldn't find my own using both hands and have absolutely no experience of anyone else's.

However, I rather think those skilled in the art might find this easier to conceal than a uk 13A (failed 15A) mains plug:

Cats trained to carry bombs, thats what we need.
Cats trained to home in on the Taliban. Blow up two problems at one go.
