This Nest Of Dirty Needles Has Become A Symbol Of Vancouver’s Opioid Crisis

1. As Vancouver grapples with the opioid crisis, a local police officer tweeted this poignant image: a clutch of pigeon eggs carefully laid in a nest of dirty needles.

It was shared by Superintendent Michelle Davey of the Vancouver Police Department on Wednesday.

According to the tweet, she spotted the scene in a single-occupancy hotel room in the city’s downtown eastside. She also said it was not staged, though it’s not clear whether they were placed by a bird or a human.

4. The image now has hundreds of retweets, but for people like Davey, it’s just another day on the frontlines.
