A Singaporean man has been caught trying to smuggle cats into Malaysia after customs officials heard ‘meowing’ from a large bulge in his trousers. 

Checkpoint staff on the Singapore side of a bridge connecting the island city-state with Malaysia had stopped the man in his car for a route check.

Officials were forced to carry out further checks when they heard meowing from a large bulge in the suspect’s trousers, a statement by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said.

According to local media, the case was referred to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

An investigation has been launched and charges may be brought against the 45-year-old. 

Checkpoint officials had stopped the man before crossing a bridge from the city-state and were forced to carry out further checks when they heard meowing from a large bulge in the suspect’s trousers.

Anyone caught smuggling unlicensed live animals and birds into Singapore could face a fine of up to 10,000 SGD (£5,780), a one-year prison sentence, or both. 

The ICA said that the case was a ’cause for concern’ and that it is worried that other people may try the same thing. 

Officials said they are concerned that any trafficking of animals between Singapore and Malaysia may introduce diseases such as rabies to the island state.
