Monkeys smuggled to Mexico in socks

Help

Mexican authorities have arrested a man who was trying to smuggle 18 small monkeys into the country by carrying them in his clothing.

Roberto Sol Cabrera, a Mexican citizen, was stopped at a random check at Mexico City's international airport after arriving from Lima.

He had hidden 18 titi monkeys in a girdle around his waist, each tied up in a sock. Two of the monkeys died later.
