Romanian women arrested on Heathrow in UK

Two Romanian women who came from the Bahamas were arrested on the London airport Heathrow after the Border Force officers found in their luggage and seized 13 iguanas from a very rare species, hidden in their socks, reports Mediafax, quoting the online edition of Huffington Post UK. The two women intended to carry the San Salvador rock iguanas, who live in Bahamas and are labeled critically endangered species, in Dusseldorf in Germany. Each iguana was wrapped inside a sock, and twelve of them survived, whereas one died. “This particular species of iguana is extremely rare, it is believed only several hundreds remained, so this is a remarkably important seizure,” said Grant Miller, with the Border Force for endangered species. “The surviving animals were dehydrated and are currently under the supervision of a veterinarian specialist. We cooperate with the experts to find the best way to protect and save these endangered creatures in the long run,”  he said. The two women, aged 24 and 26, were arrested.
