More than 1,500 live exotic turtles were founded smuggled in suitcases wrapped in duct taped in Asia recently. The turtles were 4 different species, 3 of which are vulnerable. The turtles had made it out of Hong Kong and were almost across the border.
Apparently, those busted with exotic animals face up to 10 years in prison and fines of $1.3 million dollars in Hong Kong.
