Man disguises turtle as burger to smuggle through airport
Security officials in a Chinese airport noticed something strange in the bag of a traveler identified only as Mr. Li earlier this week.
The airport’s X-Ray machine showed “suspicious corners” on what appeared to be a KFC sandwich package.
Mr. Li insisted the item was “nothing but a burger.” When security staff pointed out that the odd shape of the burger resembled that of a turtle, Li replied, “There is no turtle in there, just a hamburger. There’s nothing special to see inside,”
Officials forced the man to open his bag and found that he was indeed attempting to transport his “beloved” turtle on the plane.
Thankfully for him he was able to entrust the animal to a friend before continuing on his flight to Beijing.
