These aren't drug mules doing the smuggling.

More like drug donkeys.

Authorities in Southern California report busting a dope running operation that smuggled pot stashed in ceramic donkeys.

A joint task force has arrested 15 people and seized more than $1 million worth of the illegal weed.

Authorities say U.S. Customs officers found 1,800 pounds of pot, while inspecting a container filled with 200 statues at the Port of Long Beach.
