Now I have seen it all!!  How cruel are these people? Those poor little birds.

Traveller arrested smuggling live hummingbirds in his trousers. If you were sitting next to this airline passenger, you might understand why he was fidgeting around so much. This Dutch traveller was caught trying to smuggle more than a dozen live hummingbirds in special pouches sewn into the inside of his underwear at Rochambeau airport in Cayenne, French Guiana. The birds were individually wrapped in cloth and taped up to prevent them from ‘escaping’ from their sweaty travel container.

When his underwear was removed, officials discovered the haul of hummingbirds – who are not believed to have been sedated – lining the front. The man, who reportedly has a previous conviction for trying to smuggle the tiny creatures, was arrested. It is not clear if he has yet been charged. ( should be whipped not charged)

    Cruel about the smuggling. I hope the birds survived. But extremely weird storage idea. But then I remember the story about the sailor that had to be hospitalized for putting a grasshopper in an even more intimate location for personal entertainment purposes. It is a strange world.

      That is amazing. I couldn’t stop laughing. I guess it wasn’t so funny for the sailor. 🙂

    Those poor birds! I say we find a giant and wrap him up like that and have him travel “first class” as well then whip him. This is just sad.

    Oh my GOD! You know this gave me a connipition fit! I literally can’t stand it. How could the guards smile. I would run with them to a safe place outside and let them go! Oh how awful!
