5,000 Leeches get a man Arrested

I know that leeches have been used around the world for various medical treatments, but that doesn't stop them from making my skin crawl on sight. Now imagine being a TSA worker and opening up a bag containing 5,000 of them?! YIKES! This is exactly what got one Canadian man arrested...

Leeches being used for medical treatment in Kashmir

(METROSOURCE)  A Canadian man is facing a criminal charge after he was found with five-thousand live leeches in his luggage.  National Geographic reported the discovery was made last October at the Toronto airport.  The man was coming back home from Russia when the extra passengers were found.  He wasn't trying to hide the leeches, so he's only being charged with illegally importing an internationally regulated species without the right permits.
