Brazilian cat caught in prison break plot doesn't rat on accomplices (VIDEO)

A cat, which was busted in a Brazilian prison with saws and drills strapped to its body, has remained silent on the details of an apparent jailbreak plot.

The feline was caught in a Brazilian prison while trying to deliver tools that could help inmates escape incarceration.Inventive convicts in Alagoas jail in north eastern Brazil trained a friendly feline to deliver mobile phones and tools needed for tunnelling strapped to its body.  "An agent saw the cat and went to look at it closely because something about it seemed wrong," Marcelo Avelino, the head of the prison guards' union, told the O Globo newspaper.The cat, which was often noticed by guards going in and out of the compound, was caught with saw blades and a drill, along with a cell phone complete with battery and charger, Avelino added.Prison wardens were surprised by the wit of the animal and the keen tactics of the inmates."We were very surprised by this new tactic of the prisoners," who trained the cat so that it returned to the prison with materials, the agent added.All of the compound's 263 inmates are suspects in the smuggling attempt, but authorities say "it will be hard to discover who is responsible since the cat does not speak."
