    That was particularly sick but not unusual, it seems to be a common method for smuggling birds. There have been a few similar like King Cobra's smuggled into the US inside potato chip containers a few months ago. http://www.reuters.com/news/picture/smuggled-animals-idUSRTX3CYZK

    Who could ever forget this one, smuggling tropical fish from Singapore into Melbourne.
    Thing is for every one tht gets caught how many get through?

    Pack the smugglers in a crate and send them air freight to somewhere nice like North Korea.

    Or they get dropped off to Komodo Island... With no essentials.

    Does explain why RDU is no more though.

    Hope he gets the punishment he deserves.

    Good. Rolling all the charges into one didn't sit well with me.
