Dear All,

I found this item regarding a woman was apprehended trying to smuggle 8 Gryrfalcons out of Russia, (not on her body) interesting. You will have to scroll down a bit.

The rapid rise in the popularity of Falconry in the Middle East has caused a great demand for raptors. I wonder if the smugglers have started to look at Australia for something different.
