Pigeon Smuggler

An Australian traveller raised eyebrows and the suspicions of customs officers after he was found with two live pigeons and an aubergine down his pants. Customs Service national investigations manager Richard Janeczko said the pigeons were found wrapped in padded envelopes and held to each of the man's legs with a pair of tights. Officials also seized seeds in his money belt and an undeclared aubergine, but are at a loss to explain why the goods were smuggled into the country. Mr. Janeczko said the pigeons were not endangered and that the case had been turned over to the Quarantine Service.

The question to ask here is not “why?” but “how did this man survive an entire flight with two live pigeons stuffed down his pants?”
