Aussie caught with pigeons in pants

UPI News Service, 02/03/2009 

An Australian man is facing serious charges after customs officers at Melbourne Airport found two live pigeons hidden in his pants, authorities said.

The 23-year-old Melbourne-area man had the birds strapped to his legs when he arrived in Australia Sunday on a flight from Dubai, The Age reported Monday. The officers also seized a multi-vitamin container holding two birds eggs, as well as a money belt containing plant seeds and undeclared samples of eggplant.

It wasn't known what the alleged smuggler intended to do with the birds but now he could end up being a jailbird for as long as 10 years if convicted.

"Wildlife smuggling is not only cruel to the animals involved, it poses a severe risk to the Australian environment and the health of the Australian community," customs spokesman Richard Janeczko said.

"It is important that people declare all animal and plant materials to customs and border protection when they enter Australia."
