TSA agents at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport were in for a surprise when they spotted a dead cougar in a man's suitcase. The cougar appeared to have a Utah State Fish and Game tag but officials held the passenger while they investigated.
In the end, no crime was committed and the unidentified man shipped the cougar body to wherever his next destination was.
“It is not a crime to transport game that is legal to possess via airlines,” Police Lieutenant David Gordon said. “However, airlines reserve the right to tell passengers they do not want to transport certain items.” Now you know!
