(CNN NEWSOURCE) U-S Customs arrested a man they say tried smuggling live birds in his pants.

The man was a passenger on a flight from Cuba to Florida.

Customs and Border Patrol Agents took the man into custody on January ninth at Miami International Airport.

Officials say the passenger was concealing six exotic birds in a fanny pack -- and three more in his groin area.

The birds were turned over the Department Of Agriculture's Miami quarantine station.

It is a violation of federal law to smuggle live animals into the U-S.
