The tale Shull sent is not of the hair-raising variety. On the contrary, it simply describes a shenanigan some airport staff are pulling. Shull writes: My close friend just came back from South Africa and on arriving at the airport in Johannesburg an airport staff member advised him that his gun case had not arrived. The staff member suggested that he take a walk with him, away from the cameras, and maybe he could find his gun case. Five minutes and $100 later the thief came back with his case. I have several other hunting friends who have had similar tricks played on them, all with the same type of conclusion. Shame! Shame! Companies in the tourist business and hunting outfitters in South Africa must do more to stimulate the police, airport personnel and the airlines to protect the public. Why don't the police set up `sting' operations in the airport on an ongoing basis, with police or other personnel disguised as tourists and hunters. The scam artists and the criminals you have written about before need to be caught and put into jail before a situation escalates and it is not just personal property or money but life that is taken.
