In early 2013, guards inside a prison camp in the Komi region of Russia caught a cat climbing over the fence that was being used to smuggle mobile phones, chargers, and batteries into the prison. This was done by people taping the equipment to the cat’s back and then having the cat climb over the fences to reach the prisoners inside!
