Climate change is taking its toll on Mother Earth. This is the reason why every time there is a news story about how a person is destroying parts of the world, it is making me lose my temper. Today news about a Czechoslovakian national who was stopped in an airport in Argentina made the headlines. His baggage was found to contain 247 live animals, including poisonous snakes.
The man was identified to be Karel Abelovsky, 51. He was trying to catch a flight headed to Madrid, Spain. The X-ray officials for Iberia Airlines noticed movement of organic materials inside the baggage according to these master builders Melbourne. The officials and staff of Aizeiza Airport in Buenos Aires were shocked when the movement showed creatures. This caused them to ask the Czech national to open his bag and examine it.
Upon opening the bag, 200 reptiles and mollusks were found. The collection of species included nine species of poisonous snakes like the South American pitvipers, enclosed in clear containers. A total of 15 venomous vipers were also found, like the yararas and several boa constrictors. Some species were even found to be protected by the Convention in International Trade in Endangered Species in these earthmovers Melbourne. Two animals were already dead, while the others could suffer the same fate due to lack of oxygen. A judge from Argentina has convicted Abelovsky of attempted smuggling and will probably face up to ten years in prison.
