Dead birds posing as cat food confiscated at Dulles airport
From: Ubiquitous


confiscated by Customs agents at a Virginia airport.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the package came in to Dulles
International Airport on a flight from Beijing on Jan. 27.

Agents discovered the bag of dead birds in the baggage of a passenger who was
on their way to Prince George's County, Maryland.

The passenger said the package was cat food. The plastic packaging had
pictures of a cat and dog.


The birds are barred from importation to prevent the spread of avian flu.

[They were sleeping!]

Surely you mean resting - or alternately 'pining for the fjords'?
