At least it looks like they left a bit of an opening for the babies to be able to breathe. I guess they figure, yeah, some of them will die, but we'll make a mint selling the ones that don't die. I'm so sorry there are people with this mind set in our world.

Really sad problem is there are people out there ready to buy them but glad most have survived their ordeal.

Just terrible. Makes you wonder how many slip through the net in order for traffickers to keep doing it.

wow that must have been heavy suitcase. I hope they have a meaningful sentence to deter others. What lovely shells they have. On a positive maybe more of them will survive in doors, than out this year, CB
