Parrots flying high on drugs are annoying farmers by plundering poppy fields to feed their opium addiction – Mirror Online

Parrots flying high on drugs are annoying farmers by plundering their poppy fields to feed their opium addiction. The drug-addicted birds sit perched in wait until the morphine-rich area is exposed by workers slitting open the flowers’ pods to help them ripen. The parrots then swoop down in silence into the opium fields – having learned not to squawk – and frantically nibble off the stalks below the pod before they are spotted.
