This popped up on my local news feed today, apparently somebody used a carrier company to send pirated famicom carts that had some plastic vials inside them to send live spiders.

This was sent from Guadalajara's airport in Mexico to Maryland and since it wasn't properly documented is currently being investigated by federal authorities.

There´s a video too, thats a clever way to use that empty cart space, makes you wonder what other stuff might have been sent this way too.

When it said spider trafficking i thought it was just another name for some kind of trafficking of something or someone, I didnt actually register that these are carts
