US Customs officer in New York caught a man from Guyana who was trying to smuggle 70 live finches into the US.  The birds were individually packaged inside of a hair curler and wrapped in mesh.  The birds can be sold for $3000/ea, and are used in bird singing competitions… Yep, so those are a thing…
