Men Arrested for Sneaking Through Airport with Small Primates in Their Underwear

Men Arrested for Sneaking Through Airport with Small Primates in Their UnderwearOnly a monster would want to harm an animal this adorable.

Two men from the United Arab Emirates were arrested for trying to smuggle endangered slender lorises—small primates with large eyes—through airport security in a rather unconventional manner.

Security guards at Indira Gandhi International Airport in India had noticed suspicious bulges in the mens' underwear during a frisking, uncovering a scheme to sneak the crepuscular and carnivorous lorises to Dubai in carefully placed pouches. The lorises were fine, thankfully.

So, hold on: Their plan was to take small, carnivorous primates and to place them in their underpants for several hours at a time, presumably without feeding them? Did nobody point out the glaring flaws in their plan?
