    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.

    When i was a little tot back around 1960, a fellow down the road kept a monkey in a large cage behind his huge house.

    My grandpa told me that it was his wife.
    I never did see his wife, so i had no reason to doubt him. Lol.

    For his own consumption? You mean like eating dead and dehydrated monkeys? Reminds me of that silly song kids would sing

    Great big gobs of mutilated monkey mean
    Little birds with dirty feet
    and here I am without a spoon
    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.”
