A foreigner was stopped at a security check in a Guangzhou airport when guards discovered that the man, bless him, was trying to smuggle two birds into Singapore to relieve them of Guangzhou’s polluted air.
Guangzhou Baiyuan Airport security personnel noticed that cuffs of the man’s pants were unusually bloated when they held him at the security check before he was boarding a plane to Singapore on June 6, Yangcheng Evening News reported. A search revealed two live birds hidden in white cloth beneath the man’s trousers.
The foreigner told staff that he was only trying to take the birds to Singapore to free them from the poor air quality in Guangzhou. Sadly, the man had to board the airline—which doesn’t allow live animals—without his birds, and must now get one of his friends to send them to Singapore.
We imagine the bird-break was at least slightly more inconspicuous than the man in Cuba who attempted to board a US-bound flight last week with 66 chirping birds sewn into his pants.
Face it, guys. If that guy at Guangzhou International Airport couldn’t even get that turtle-hamburger past security, no one’s getting their pets through.
