In questi ultimi anni vanno molto di moda i programmi televisivi in stile reality che si svolgono negli aeroporti, soprattutto al controllo merci e bagagli. In effetti, a volte all’interno dei bagagli sono state trovate cose davvero bizzarre.

Molto spesso incauti viaggiatori ripongono animali vivi nelle valigie, senza pensare alla salute delle povere bestiole. Di recente, per esempio, sono state trovate più di mille tartarughe in quattro valigie. Qualche tempo fa a Los Angeles, invece, sono state trovate sempre quattro valigie piene d’acqua con centinaia di pesci all’interno.

Altro caso curioso, nel bagaglio di un passeggero che andava dalla Germania verso Israele sono stati trovati sei piccioni vivi. Ma il record in questo campo risale al 2009, quando un uomo di ritorno dalla Thailandia aveva nelle valigie oltre 70 animali, tra cui rane, scorpioni, ragni e serpenti. Non si può certo dire che gli addetti al controllo bagagli abbiano un lavoro noioso!

Suitcases full of surprises

In recent years, reality-style television programs set in airports have become very popular, especially those that take place in the customs area. In fact, sometimes some really weird things have been found in luggage.

Very often careless travellers put live animals in their suitcases, without thinking about the health of the poor creature. For example, more than a thousand turtles were recently found in four suitcases. Also, some time ago, four suitcases, full of water and with hundreds of fish inside, were found, this time in Los Angeles.

In another curious case, six live pigeons were found in the luggage of a passenger travelling from Germany to Israel. But the record in this field dates back to 2009, when a man returning from Thailand had over 70 animals in his suitcases, including frogs, scorpions, spiders and snakes. Let no-one claim that baggage checkers have a boring job!
