Smuggling Monkeys

A man was stopped for smuggling at Los Angeles International Airport last summer. Not drugs, and not weapons -- but live plants and animals -- specifically, flowers and birds in his luggage and pygmy monkeys in his pants. Lynn Neary talks with Eileen Jurdgutis, a U.S. Customs Service Inspector at Los Angeles International Airport.
