Man Tries To Smuggle Venomous King Cobra Snakes Into U.S. In Potato Chip Cans

COMMENTS

US Customs and Border Protection caught the package on its way into the country on March 2nd and confiscated the very venomous cobras the day after.

The animals were only about 2 feet in length each, which is somewhat less scary than the possible 18 feet that a king cobra could grow into.

Franco has also admitted to trying to do this before.

According to the Department of Justice, he admitted that his past attempts had resulted in the deaths of the animals.  For exactly what reason Franco was so intent on bringing scary, vicious, venomous snakes into the country is anybody's guess.

We doubt it was to take baths with them, but who are we to judge?

Franco faces up to 20 years in prison if he is found guilty at trial.

Presumably, this will stop his attempts to smuggle the animals into the country.
