Pet Smuggling Comic

by Alex Hallatt

Although this cartoon is based on a previous true story, I read this in SeattlePI.com just this week(!):

BANGKOK (AP) — Authorities at Bangkok’s international airport arrested a first-class passenger Friday whose suitcases were filled with baby leopards, panthers, a bear and monkeys. The animals had been drugged and were headed for Dubai.

When authorities opened the suitcases, the animals yawned, said Steven Galster, director of FREELAND, who was present during the bust. There were two leopards, two panthers, an Asiatic black bear and two macaque monkeys — all about the size of puppies.
