Man Detained By Customs With Pigeon In His Pants
The unnamed 23-year-old traveler was going from Dubai to Melbourne. Australian customs found two pigeons wrapped in padded envelopes and held to his legs by a pair of tights under his trousers.
Customs officials say they also seized seeds in the man’s money belt and an undeclared aubergine [eggplant], following the flight on Sunday.
They add that the pigeons were not endangered and that the case, as well as the birds, eggs and seeds, has been turned over to the country’s Quarantine Service to assess the health risk.
