Colombian police discovered four kilos of cocaine intended for export Europe concealed in vials containing duck embryos, reports El Espectador.
The embryos, used to regenerate cells in treatment of cancer, HIV, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s and infertility, were surrounded by a protective gel containing dilute cocaine.
In a statement, police said there were over two hundred bottles containing embryos. The final destination of the package was Madrid.
Colombian authorities said this was the first time they have ever seen cocaine smuggled as protective gel for duck embryos.
