Here's where I would place the the belly of the plane and at 30k feet open the trap door. There is no shame when it comes to money for many people.

Some of these people claim to love animals. Problem is, they can't distinguish between possessiveness and love.

En route to Dubai--doesn't surprise me there.
As with the other commenters here, I am glad the smuggles was caught. Wondering if any penalties will stick.

Some people are incredibly stupid, some are incredibly cruel, and some are both.

If Thailand has the death penalty, this person certainly deserves it!
