An eight-year-old boy became an online sensation after he was caught trying to sneak his pet turtle through security in his undies at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Guangzhou Daily reports. Thankfully it wasn’t a snapper.
The boy, named Congcong, and his grandma were reportedly going through the security checkpoint when his grandma told him to let the turtle go as pets weren’t allowed on the airplane. However, Congcong was so in love with the turtle he secretly stuffed it in his underwear.
However, his cover was blown when a inspector spotted a moving bulge in Congcong’s crotch area. The guard asked Congcong if he put something in his pants. Congcong became nervous and covered his crotch with his hands.
“Congcong, you should cooperate with Uncle Inspector’s job. Just take the thing out if you did put something inside your pants!” said Grandma. Grandma became suspicious upon seeing Congcong cover his crotch even more tightly. “My little grandson, did you put the turtle inside your underwear? Let me check to see it now.”
After inspecting his pants, the inspector found the turtle nestled inside. He told Congcong that he would deliver the pet to Congcong’s parents. Congcong agreed and left with his grandma.
Sadly, it seems it’s not only eight-year-olds who devise half-baked attempts to smuggle turtles through airport security. Last year, a man at Guangzhou International Airport was caught attempting to sneak his pet turtle through by disguising it as a KFC hamburger.
