The man packing a dozen PECKERS in his pants: Traveller arrested smuggling live hummingbirds in his trousers

Via: Daily Mail

If you were sat 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 (12+1 = 13 peckers, right?) 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.

But fortunately for the unfortunate birds authorities noticed the passenger acting suspiciously and he was detained by French customs officers.

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. (Hummmmm)
