A huge smuggling racket was busted in California, USA, on July 25 when customs agents caught a package containing three live King Cobras inside potato chip cans. Rodrigo Franco, 34, who was set to receive the package, has been arrested on federal charges.
Rodrigo Franco, 34, was charged with illegally importing merchandise into the country in connection with a parcel from Hong Kong that was intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents containing the 2-foot-long snake concealed inside the canisters.
A 12-feet long King Cobra was laid on the table,it tried to slither out of the grip of a dozen hands holding it,but slowly its owner pushed it inside a transparent tube. Its scales were counted,and once it relaxed,it was injected with a micro-chip of the size of a grain of rice.
