At least they're putting their rectums to good use! Ha!
Earlier this week, South Korean customs officials made the announcement that they've arrested eight men who schemed to smuggle gold out of the country…in their rectums!
Apparently, the men were able to transform $260,000 worth of gold bars into "small beads" and they smuggled it all across the border TWICE in 2010, in an effort to avoid import taxes! Wow!
We're hearing that the men were caught by

Thai authorities have saved over 750 dogs from an illegal smuggling operation that was trying to bring them to Vietnam.
In Vietnam, dog meat is considered a delicacy, which is absolutely disgusting.
A Thai navy patrol caught the smugglers on a river, during the transportation of the dogs.
One Thai man was arrested on several charges, mainly illegal transportation of animals.
The other smugglers escaped.
All the dogs are going to be sent to a shelter, where they definitely won't be eaten.
A happy ending for hundreds of doggies!!

US Border Patrol Agents are now using horses to fight drug smugglers!
Even off-loading pick-up trucks and ATVs have trouble with some of the rocky terrain around the US/Mexico border.
So they enlisted the help of wild mustangs.
The horses know the territory and trust each other, so they can easily be used to chase down drug smugglers vehicles.
Since July, the horses have been credited with seizing a record 930,000 pounds of marijuana and arresting over 350 suspects.
Many of the horses were rescued from slaughter houses and trained by prison inmates to be effective drug hunters.
It's so great to know that these horses are rescued and given a job where they get to run around the open terrain with one another.
