A woman traveling from Singapore to Melbourne last weekend was discovered to have been smuggling 51 live tropical fish in water-filled plastic bags under her skirt. She might have got away with it if airport security hadn’t noticed a “flipping sound” emanating from her waist area. Customs officials frown on importing live animals without going through proper channels, so to speak, and the woman could face charges for breaking quarantine. (Reuters via This Is London)
A search of the woman’s home in Melbourne found another five fish.
