A Japanese female college student has been detained in Thailand on suspicion of attempting to smuggle 10 baby otters out of the country without permission, Thai police said Tuesday.

The otters were found in a basket inside the woman’s suitcase at Don Mueang International Airport late Sunday as she was about to leave the country with them on a Tokyo-bound flight.
