Dog Swap on Mexican Flight
Watch what you check on a flight out of Mexico City: someone might pull a tricky switch on you. A top Mexican police dog--star of many a good drug bust--named Rex IV was mysteriously kidnapped this week on a flight from Mexico City to Mazatlan.
When handlers unloaded the dog cargo at the Mazatlan airport of Sinaloa, Belgian Malinois Rex IV had disappeared and been replaced by a small black puppy. Quite why the thieves bothered leaving the puppy in Rex IV's place isn't clear, but perhaps they just wanted to ease their consciences. Maybe on your next flight your YSL suitcase will be replaced with a K-Mart shopping bag, so keep an eye out.
