Chinese man tries to sneak on plane with pet turtle disguised as cheeseburger
One resourceful man from China tried to sneak his pet turtle through customs by hiding the creature in a hamburger container. The man slapped two slices of bread, lettus, tomato and special sauce on the turtle, trying to fully hide its identity the South China Morning Post reports.
The backstory here starts in the terminal for a China Southern Airline. A man wanted to sneak his pet turtle into Beijing, so he disguised it as a cheeseburger. As the man, Li, passed through security, their X-ray scanner noted a few ‘odd, bony’ protrusions coming from within a KFC hamburger container.
Upon closer inspection, Li became nervous and stated, “There’s no turtle in there, just a hamburger.” The man was of course not telling the truth and his turtle was taken away.
