    Two Chinese tourists in Cape Town, South Africa, left a backpack full of illegal rhino horn and ivory worth about $5,000 in a restaurant. When they returned to retrieve it, they were directed to the local police station, where the restaurant staff had sent the backpack. Unfortunately for the would-be rhino horn smugglers, the police had discovered the contraband inside the bag, and the pair were fined and deported.
