6 of 11

A Bulgarian man traveling to Dublin from Madrid was busted for hiding a tiny chihuahua in his hand luggage. The airport X-ray scanner picked up the outline of the dog, which was in a cage within the luggage. At first, customs officials thought it was a stuffed toy but soon discovered the live dog when they opened up the bag for further inspection. The dog, which had no health certificate or clearance permit, was quarantined by the Department of Agriculture.
