Listen: A man tried to smuggle snakes into Canada using his own socks

AJO, AZ - MARCH 27: A rattlesnake tastes the air on the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Reserve on March 27, 2006 near Ajo, Arizona. Because of escalating environmental problems associated with the region?s massive illegal immigration and stepped up border enforcement efforts, the vast and desert wilderness in and around the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Reserve and Organ Pipe National Monument has been described as the nation?s most embattled wilderness by reserve officials. Immigrants crossing the desert are discarding tons of used water bottles, excess clothing and other trash as they elude the Border Patrol. Border agents trying to stop them, and vehicles that cross the border illegally, are accelerating widespread off-road vehicle damage on the fragile Sonoran Desert plain at an unprecedented rate.

They say the punishment should fit the crime, but what about when the crime itself feels like a punishment?

Doc and Kal heated up the “Friday leftovers” and covered some weird crime stories:

Chaoyi Le, 28, faces sentencing at the end of this month for a 2014 incident where Canadian border agents found three live albino western hognose snakes tucked in his socks to be smuggled over the border.

"Sneaking snakes in your socks sounds like the punishment, not the crime," Doc joked on today's show. "How are you benefiting from that?" he wondered.
