Airport X-ray machine revealed an unusual item in one man's hand luggage
A Bulgarian man travelled from Bulgaria to Madrid and then got on a connecting flight to Dublin. The man appeared to be a normal traveller minding his own business until he was stopped at the X-ray machines in customs in Dublin airport. When the man’s luggage was scanned through the x-ray machine, customs officials spotted what originally looked like a toy or cuddly toy dog. However when officials opened the luggage they were astonished to see a REAL Chihuahua. A Revenue spokesperson said “The dog appears to be in good health, although a little dopey from the long journey.” The Bulgarian man was arrested and taken into custody at Dublin airport. The Chihuahua is thought to be detained in quarantine.
