Apparently, a man in China couldn’t bear to be apart from his pet turtle on a recent trip, so he tried to smuggle it on the plane – wrapped as a chicken sandwich!
The man, identified by officials as Li, was going thru security at a Chinese airport when officials notice something strange in his carry-on. It was a KFC sandwich but X-rays noticed the “odd protrusions” sticking out of the wrapper. That’d be the turtle’s legs.
“Nothing special to see inside” Li proclaimed to airport staff, but they looked anyway, found Li’s “beloved” pet shoved into the sandwich roll and explained that turtles were not allowed on planes. He agreed to leave the turtle in the care of a friend until he returned. And is probably one of those people that will call every day for a turtle update.
