SAN LUIS, Ariz. (KNXV) -
Two live parrots were found hidden inside an Elmo doll by agents when a California couple tried to enter the U.S. in San Luis, Arizona.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a couple underwent an intensive agriculture inspection on July 1 when agriculture specialists first found a bag of mangos with seeds intact. Another specialist then took an X-ray of a red Elmo doll and found an "anomaly" inside. The doll was cut open and two live parrots were found inside.
The birds and fruit were seized by border agents...
