Traveler Smuggles 100 Pounds of Live Cobras on Train
Snakes on a plane is a tired story, but here’s one that should excite you.
According to MSNBC, a Vietnamese railway discovered 100 pounds of cobra snakes on a train last Friday, terrifying both passengers and officials.
The squirming snakes were very much alive and stored in four cloth bags with their mouths sewn shut. Security staff removed them as soon as they were notified of the issue. They believe the snakes were on their way to dinner tables in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Though cobras are protected by law in the country, snake meat is considered a delicacy. Think of the poor soul who had to UN-sew the mouths of those snakes! Yikes!
