With a headline like that, what more is there to say?

Except this, according to the Haaretz report on this foiled international crime:

The bird-brained smuggler was returning to Nablus from Jordan across the Allenby Bridge.

He was pulled over for a body search after attracting the attention of custom officials. (Could his cargo had been guilty of excessive tweeting?)

He was discovered with 40 goldfinches on his person.

Wild goldfinches sell for up to $130 a bird.

This was the third foiled goldfinch smuggling attempt this year.
