CBP dog sniffs out something unusual in passenger's luggage — mummified monkeys

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection dog sniffed out something unusual in luggage from a traveler returning from Africa — mummified monkeys.

The passenger returning from a visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo reported that the luggage contained dried fish, but an inspection at Boston Logan Airport revealed dead and dehydrated bodies of four monkeys, agents said. The traveler said he brought the monkeys into the U.S. for his own consumption, Ryan Bissette, a CPB spokesperson, said Sunday.

Raw or minimally processed meat from wild animals, sometimes referred to as “bushmeat,” is banned in the U.S. because of the threat of disease.

I was going to eat that jerky!

panic,

For his own consumption?? Smh and he let them throw it all away instead of chugging all 4 mummified monkeys over a trash can like a real American does at TSA/customs /j

thefartographer,

“U.S. Customs and Border Patrol confiscated two and a half mummified monkeys and an assortment of bones today…”

Maybe it's time to unsubscribe from lemmy.world

CluckN,

You have not truly lived if until you’ve tried Monkey Jerky.

thefartographer,

But my friend Jimmy’s dad said that playing Monkey Jerky will give you hairy palms and make you go blind!

assplode,

To be fair, it's really hard to get your hands on a human mummy to eat nowadays.

JimmyBigSausage,

Must have been coming to the Tucson Gem show. Lots of fossils, mammoth bones and hair, dinosaur bones for sale!
