An officer with the Vancouver Police Department in British Columbia, Canada shared a photo of a nest made by pigeons using opioid needles.
The nest with three eggs inside was found in a room in a building used for homelessness outreach in the downtown area, the officer said.
Like the U.S., Canada is experiencing an opioid crisis. A police spokesperson told VICE News it is not uncommon to see pigeons in that part of Vancouver flying around with needles as nesting materials.
