Live Tiger Cub Found In Luggage

The Tiger Cub

Last month, a  Thai woman was caught trying to smuggle a tranquilized tiger onto an airplane headed for Iran. The first question that comes to mind is why. Who knows ? She had him stuffed between other furry animal toys in her luggage. Keep in mind that all asian tigers are listed as endangered or worse. What in the world caused this woman to do what she did ? Here’s what I think happened. 

I will name the woman Betty. Now Betty has lived in one place for ever and decided she wanted a change of scenery. ”  Hey , I hear Iran has the best food in the entire world”, she says to herself. So she buys a ticket to Iran, which will leave the following day. She is very excited. She is so excited ,that she cannot stand still, so she decides to go for a walk, in the heavily bushed area called her backyard.(Keep in mind that this story is only a fabrication of what could have possibly happened  but which is very unlikely.)There she enjoys the fragrant perfume of the flowers and trees,and listens to the beautiful melodies of the birds overhead.Something orange catches her eye. She walks closer for a better look. ” Oh my”!, she exclaims, “What a pretty little kitty”! “” I’ve always wanted a cat”. It was then and there that she formed the decision to keep the cat. As she is lugging the kitty home, she remembers that tomorrow she must leave the country. ” Well, she says to herself, I can’t just leave my precious here, I must take him with me”. She then hikes back to her house and makes sure she still has some tranquilizers left from the time she tried to smuggle her pet commodo dragon into the public library.”That episode with my commodo dragon, Binky, was a mess but I’m much smarter now,”‘ she thinks to herself. She then goes to the Toys R Us that is conveniently right down the street and proceeds to purchase oodles of stuffed animals. 

The next day she stuffs all the  stuffed animals into her luggage,  grabs the tiger, which she has named Thrifty, and tranquilized him. She then lifts Thrifty and places him into her bag, and onto the cushion of teddy bears and lions. At the airport she tries to put the bag onto the security checkpoint conveyor belt with much difficulty. A security guard notices her plight and walks over to assist her. They finally get the bag to go through the scanner.” A checkpoint security officer spots something different about the plentiful stuffed animals in this lady’s luggage. She takes a closer look, and the rest is news.

The lesson here friends is that you can never buy too much stuffed animals.



  1. I like your idea of why the lady wanted to keep the tiger, you also did a fantastic job describing the scenery! Keep on writing!
