S’porean man caught smuggling 4 live kittens in his pants at Tuas Checkpoint
From mew to ew.
On January 3, a 45-year-old Singaporean man was caught with four live kittens in his pants by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) at Tuas checkpoint.
The case was shared in a Facebook post by ICA on January 5.
Mewing sounds from bulge
The man, who was in a Singapore-registered car, had hidden the kittens around his crotch area, like so:
Officers had heard mewing from the bulge in his pants, which prompted further checks on their part.
Here are the four kittens retrieved:
The case was subsequently referred to Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) for investigations, and the kittens are currently under AVA’s care and quarantine as well.
One Facebook user made a very important point, though:
Under the Animals and Birds Act, those found guilty of importing any animals or live birds into Singapore without a licence are liable to a S$10,000 fine, imprisonment for up to a year, or both.
