After being discovered trying to smuggle more than 100 live animals aboard a plane, two ladies were detained.
On Monday, June 27, 109 animals were split between two cases at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Thailand, owned by Nithya Raja, 38, and Zakia Sulthana Ebrahim, 24.
After an X-ray check, shocked airport officials discovered the creatures within the suitcase.
Two albino porcupines, two armadillos, 35 turtles, 50 lizards, and 20 snakes were among the species found in the cases.
According to Khong-ngern, Raja and Ebrahim were accused of breaking the Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act of 2019.
Additionally, the Animal Disease Act of 2015 and the Customs Act of 2017 were determined to have been broken.
What the women intended to do with the animals is still a mystery.
Animal trafficking through airports has reportedly been a problem in the area for a while.
