Coyotes mule chicken through Poipet crossing

What came first, the chicken, the egg or the arrest on suspicion of illegal importation? Police in Poipet town on Tuesday had no time for such quandaries when they busted two women with 79 kilograms of chicken meat and 600 eggs that they had allegedly brought across the border from Thailand without having their wares checked by health officials.

The women reportedly told police that they had bypassed the checkpoint to avoid paying police and the health officials, but police had no sympathy for their plight, and sent them to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
