Ecuador cop held over trying to smuggle nearly 200 Galapagos tortoises

An Ecuadorian cop has been arrested after Galapagos airport officials found discovered 185 baby giant tortoises stuffed in a suitcase to be smuggled out of the Baltra Island. The tortoises, which were under three months old, were found wrapped in plastic and stuffed in a suitcase during a routine check. Ten of them had already died when the suitcase was opened, and another five died since then.

What was the purpose of the smuggling..to eat, or as exotic pets?
