I've Heard Of Smuggling, But Finch Smuggling?

I guess people really do smuggle anything and everything.

We've all heard about drug smuggling and arms smuggling, but, apparently, there is also wing smuggling. 


Sorry, that was bad...

Anyways, a man was caught at JFK trying to smuggle 20 finches into country using plastic tubes.

The Guyanese national had his birds confiscated, was fined $300, refused entry into the country, and scheduled to be sent back to Guyana.

If you're wondering why it is so important that we keep a few pet birds out of the country, it's pretty much because they can cripple our entire agricultural system with their viral and bacterial diseases.

Yea, kind of a big deal.
