This video is a glimpse into the life of a man who was just sentenced to 30 months in prison for smuggling rare bird eggs. Dangling from a helicopter over a steep cliff, he risks his life during the theft.

Jeffrey Lendrum, who hails from Britain, was arrested after he was caught trying to smuggle 14 peregrine falcon eggs out of Wales. He was on his way to Dubai. According to the BBC:

"Lendrum had previous convictions in Zimbabwe and Canada for stealing rare eggs. He once abseiled off a cliff to reach a nest, while on another occasion he lowered himself from a helicopter in Canada to reach his prize."

Investigators used the footage you see here, retreived from Lendrum's bags, to help convict him.
