Man Allegedly Tries To Smuggle 51 Turtles In His Pants Across Border

Yahoo News Digest reports that a Canadian man is facing charges in the USA after allegedly trying to smuggle 51 live turtles “stuffed down his pants” across the Windsor-Detroit border last month.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. Is there some sort of massive demand for turtles in Detroit, of which we are unaware? Given all the abandoned buildings, we are surprised there is a demand for any product in Detroit.

2. When are turtles going to do the right thing and get passports?

3. What kind of pants hold 51 turtles? In this world where people are complaining 6 inch iPhones bend in their pockets, we do not know what the fashion answer is to that.

  1. I hope these weren’t snapping turtles.


  2. 51 is such an arbitrary number. Do you think he got to fifty, looked down, and said, “Let’s see if we can fit one more”?
