Man Caught With 1700 Animals In His Trunk

Talk about junk in your trunk (sorry, but I just had to). An Italian man was arrested after a routine police stop ended up with authorities seizing over 1700 animals in his trunk. Included in the bust were 216 parakeets, 300 white mice, 150 hamsters, 30 Japanese squirrels, six chameleons and over 1,000 terrapins, a type of turtle.

It seems he was going to sell the rare critters, but they have instead been given to local zoos.

Since when is it illegal to have thousands of animals in your trunk? Surely there is a reasonable explanation. Like, "I was taking my thousands of animals to the park but they all get car sick if they don't ride in the trunk".
