At Bangkok airport, a tourist tried to smuggle otters and a prairie dog in his underwear

A tourist who tried to smuggle two otters and a prairie dog out of the country was detained at the Bangkok airport in Thailand. This story would not have attracted so much attention if not for the smuggler's "ingenious" plan to hide the animals in his underwear.

The 22-year-old Taiwanese traveler reportedly bought the animals at a market in Bangkok and then stuffed them into his underwear before arriving at the international airport. Security guards noticed that something was moving in the man's pants, so they decided to detain him, the New York Post reports.

At the airport checkpoint, the officers were confused by the tourist's excessively large bulge below the waist. Moreover, it was noticeable that something was moving in his pants.

The guards sent the suspicious tourist to an X-ray station, where the scan showed that his pants were "wriggling like a traveling circus."

A subsequent search revealed that the man had first stuffed the two Asian otters and the prairie dog into three separate socks, then taped them to his underpants, and put on additional boxer shorts on top. It was obvious that the animals were trying to get out, not to talk about the danger that threatened their lives in such "conditions".

The detainee was going to sell them in Taiwan. The source said he would be charged. In the meantime, his illegal "packages" were handed over to the Wildlife Protection Administration.

As OBOZ.UA wrote earlier, a Russian tourist, who is called "Mr. Oleg" at the Phuket airport in Thailand, entertained employees with his antisocial behavior for 14 days. The Russian was spotted drunk in the waiting room, after which he was fed, dressed, nursed, and even had his eyes treated. All this time, the indifferent Russian embassy did not help its citizen, so the 38-year-old's mother had to collect money for his return ticket for two weeks.
