What's the craziest thing you've tried to sneak past the officers at the border? Chances are, it doesn't come close to what one teenager from California tried to smuggle back from Mexico.

Despite all the notices and warnings about what you can and cannot bring into the country, there are people who still go to great lengths to break the rules.

Eighteen-year-old Luis Eudoro Valencia is one of those people.

While conducting a routine inspection, officers at the Otay Mesa border caught the young man crossing into the U.S. with a tiger cub lying on the floor of his 2017 Chevy Camaro.

The stunned border officials confiscated the wild cat but that wasn't the end of it. Since Valencia couldn't provide a permit or a declaration for being in possession of the tiger, he was pulled in for interrogation and he has since landed himself in hot water.
