"Ain't no mountain high enough," the Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell classic goes. "Ain't no border fence high enough" is about right for drug smugglers in Mexico, though.

One lot on the Mexican side of a fence near Douglas, Arizona realised they wouldn't be able to get marijuana into the US, so set up a catapult to do the job for them.

ABC7 reports "a few people" were spotted by border agents on the south side of the fence, with the agents then finding 47lbs of the drug in the close vicinity.

This drug find's not quite as humourous as cocaine being found in Kinder Eggs.

See the catapult below.
