Just wondering how the whole process works.
How animals are obtained how they are shipped what do they do to make sure they don't get caught and that the animals live how can you tell the diffence between a legit smuggler to an illegitimate one etc. got bored and curious about it... I want answers
shitty smugglers use public transportation because el chapo will cut their gram grams head off unless he makes 15k by sunday.
good smugglers own a modest boat with a side business- angling, tour, salvage, science. they have contacts along the coast for fuel and guides. they buy exotic species from the guides for pennies on the dollar then drop them off along river delta settlements in the states to be sold privately- online, conventions, collectors.
you dont want to buy directly from smugglers unless you know them personally. you want to buy from trade show enthusiasts or online.
yeah really bored and curious about it huh
Heard of a guy locally that literally stuffed the back of a van full with pups and got on the ferry. Guards checked the vanand everything. No paperwork, no license, no nothing. Didn't care. Puppy smuggler, away!
I hear a lot of drug smuggling is done with snakes now. If I remember right that picture is from some dudes who made snakes eat condoms filled with cocaine and then sewed their mouths and anuses shut.
Speaking of pet shipping my mom wants to send me her cat and we live on opposite sides of the United States. Is there a service you folks can recommend? How much can I expect to spend?
I've thought about that. If I was a cruel cocaine dealer how easy it would be to ship them via snakes. Especially how cheap balls are. I'm surprised someone actually did it but I feel accomplished.
You'll need to google your shit, but I think you have to do airline shipping for that, as in, Mom drops Kitty off at one airport and you pick her up at another. I don't know about cats, but getting my 3 rats shipped to me was about $120, so it is pricy.
