Drug smugglers are equipping themselves for Donald Trump’s wall, it seems.
U.S. border patrol agents in Arizona have uncovered and dismantled a very rudimentary catapult used to sling marijuana into the United States from Mexico.
Yep, for real. A closer look at the device reveals a medieval-style bundle of tubing and heavy spring tied together by rope which could be straight from Mad Max: Fury Road.
Agents made the discovery when they approached several people near the fence, who then scattered away, according to CNN. Two bundles of cannabis weighing a combined 47 lb (21 kg) were still attached to the catapult.
The U.S. federal agency tweeted the picture, joking that USBP agents “spring into action” dismantling the pot-flinging tool.
Trump has promised to build the wall on the 1,100-mile border with Mexico.
About 650 miles of the border are already covered by some sort of fence.
Authorities also discovered a 380m tunnel that ran from a restaurant in Mexico to a house in California.
