The Kuwaiti customs authorities have aborted an attempt to smuggle 23 falcons from neighbouring Iraq.

A man drugged the birds of prey and attempted to smuggle them through Al Ebdelli border crossing by hiding them in suitcases.

The Environment Public Authority handed over 20 falcons to the Iraqi authorities, as three birds died during the smuggling attempt.


The smuggled falcons, which include 16 Shaheen and four Al-Hur, are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) agreement prohibiting trafficking in animals.
