Traveler caught trying to smuggle 70 live birds through JFK in hair rollers

This is enough to make fellow flyers’ hair curl.

A passenger flying into John F. Kennedy International Airport Saturday was caught trying to smuggle live animals.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said an agriculture specialist discovered 70 live birds in the bag of a traveler who had just touched down in New York from Georgetown, Guyana, in South America. 

The dozens of finches were hidden inside green and orange hair rollers in a black duffel bag, the law enforcement agency said in a statement Wednesday.
