Mexico’s navy has seized more than a ton of cocaine hidden inside the carcasses of frozen sharks, the BBC is reporting.

Using X-ray machines and sniffer dogs, authorities found packages of cocaine inside more than 20 sharks on a freighter in the Gulf coast port of Progreso.


Correspondents say cartels are coming up with increasingly creative ways of smuggling drugs into the U.S., the BBC reports.

Despite finding the cocaine, authorities aren’t sure this case was a smuggling attempt because they also found the presumed smuggler in one of the sharks.

I’m sure that the captain of the freighter said he didn’t know the sharks had such a big drug habit.
