Smuggler Tries To Sneak Fish Into Australia Around His Neck

A Vietnamese national who allegedly smuggled a species of endangered fish into Australia around his neck says he was planning on keeping the animal as a pet.

34-year-old Van Ho Le appeared in Adelaide Magistrates Court on Wednesday after he was stopped at the Adelaide Airport last month.

Le told reporters outside court he did not intend to sell the Asian arowana and did not think importing it was a serious issue.
