A woman in New Zealand has called the police after her cat left a bag of drugs on her doorstep, it’s been reported.

The worried owner, who has not been identified, apparently rang the authorities in Dunedin on the county’s South Island after she found the bag with 5g (0.2oz) of cannabis inside. ”You hear of cats bringing dead birds and rats home, but certainly in my career I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Sergeant Reece Munro tells the Otago Daily Times, adding the marijuana has a street value of about NZ$100 ($85, ВЈ51).

While the origin of the cannabis remains a mystery, Munro says that – until now – he’d never stopped to think about the sniffing potential of cats. “We certainly have police dogs trained to detect drugs – this might be something police could explore in the future,” he says.

Cat Brings Home Bag Of Weed

Sometimes catnip just doesn’t cut it.

A cat in Ashmore, New Zealand returned home from a jaunt outside Sunday with a 0.2-ounce bag of marijuana in its mouth, the AFP reported.

The cat’s owner promptly called police to report the drug-trafficking feline, Sergeant Reece Munro told the Otago Daily News. He said the woman said her cat had given her “a bag of drugs.”

Munro said police are conducting an investigation to see where the bag may have come from. He also said that the contents were valued at about NZ$150, which is equivalent to about $130 USD.

High Times notes that, “Apparently, the cat was oblivious to the fact that not only is his human extremely lame, but also a boldfaced nark [sic].”
