Walking through customs is often an experience fraught with a decent amount of irrational anxiety: you know you haven't snuck anything through, but the stony-eyed stares of the customs guards fill you with fear anyway.
So imagine the level of nerves if you've actually tried to sneak something through.
When a 50-year-old Australian woman was arrested at Queensland airport, she was routinely asked if she had anything to declare.
Yes, yes she did.
A baby koala. In her bag.
According to the woman, she had found the baby koala, who is approximately six months old on a main road in a Brisbane town called Nathan, and had nursed it back to health.
What prompted the woman to then take the 1.5kg baby koala - which has been named Alfred - across the country in a bag, is unclear.
Koalas are an endangered species in Australia, and the law forbids owning one as a pet.
An RSPCA Queensland spokesperson said the koala was a little dehydrated but was in good health:
He’s been on fluids but is doing well and will shortly be going out to a carer.
