It’s hard to fathom, and it may be the most graphic representation of the opioid crisis currently gripping Vancouver.

On Wednesday, Vancouver Police Supt. Michelle Davey tweeted a photo from a Downtown Eastside Single Room Occupancy (SRO) residency that shows a pigeon nest made out of needles.

Along with the nest, three eggs can be seen.

The photo shows the “sad reality” of the opioid crisis, Davey says in the caption.

More to come…..
