Smuggled from Bangkok: illegal cute overload

If cuteoverload.com had a section for illegal baby animals, this would be tops.  Last week, authorities in Thailand caught a guy trying to smuggle baby leopards, panthers, a bear and monkeys…in his suitcases.  The animals, apparently all drugged, were headed for Dubai.  The smuggler was a 36-year old United Arab Emirates citizen, and was trying to fly first class with suitcases packed with baby endangered species.

Poor baby animals, separated from their mommas — these pics will make your heart melt!

(Thanks, MB!)

I’ll admit, fobs don’t have a good track record with animal rights.  Read about the orangutan addicted to smoking, live animal key rings, and Chinese people mutating dogs into tigers.
