Some of the Recorded Weird Scenarios of People Who Were Smuggling Caught Animals
The rate at which the wild animals are smuggled is very high. Usually, the year 2009 marks one of the years where most animals that were trafficked were identified. After the animals were recovered they were not restored to the place there were made from. Even with the recovery of wildlife from trafficking, most are the animals that are lost and not found. On the other hand, most are the animal smugglers that are caught smuggling animals every year. In this site, you will come across the interesting stories of individuals who were detained for trying to sneak in animals. Here are some of the recorded weird situations of people who were smuggling animals.
The instance of the person found trying to sneak in pythons and geckos is one of the commonly told stories. A person who belongs to Norway was put in custody in October 2009 when he was caught on a boat on his way from Denmark. The customs officials were left in shock immediately they realized a tarantula on the end of the animal. One of the custom custodians concluded that the whole body was moving at a constant speed. Later long, the customs officials identified 14 pythons and a long snake about 23feets that coiled on his body in stockings. As if this was not enough the customs officials identified about 12 cans that contained geckos.
Another weird area is where a client was found trying to sneak some parrots eggs in the UK airport. There was a guy who was put in custody for trying animal trafficking as he was found having 40 parrots eggs. The most interesting thing is that the client had even made a vest to ensure that he carries the parrots’ eggs effectively. The customs officials were suspicious and searched the passenger only to find the person carrying all these parrot eggs. Among the eggs that were being sneaked were eggs of the blue-headed macaw an animal that is endangered. These eggs were now transferred to the animal zoo.
The other interesting story is the spider smuggler in Brazil. Brazil is a bio-diverse nation, and hence limited cases of animal trafficking have listened to. Even with the country being bio-diverse you will get some clients working animal trafficking. It is recorded that in 2005 a guy was caught trying to sneak some poisonous spiders on his briefcase. As the customs officials were trying to look what was on the briefcase of the man many poisonous spiders were found. Some of these spiders are known to feed on birds.
