The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agents at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport discovered and confiscated dozens of pounds of African rat meat last week.
CBP’s Chicago Customs Bureau spokesman Steve Bansbach said the man actually declared the meat on his June 26 flight from the Ivory Coast, presumably thinking it would be allowed to cross the border if the proper paperwork was filed. It was, of course, collected and immediately destroyed.
The article goes on to state the following:
“He declared it,” Bansbach told Fox News. “He claimed he had meat during inspection. We found that, yes, he had African rat meat — 32 pounds of it.” Because the man was honest about his cargo and intentions, Bansbach also confirmed that he did not face any penalty outside of the loss of his rodent flesh. “We destroyed it and educated him on it,” he said.
