The craziest things confiscated by the TSA
A human skull, live eels and a landmine are just a few of this crazy list of items confiscated by TSA. Take a look to find out what else made the list.
(FOX News) -- The TSA may be incredibly strict about the size of everyone's shampoo bottles, but big bags of animal poo are just fine.
On April 15, a traveler going through security at the Juneau International Airport in Alaska was caught with a bag full of moose droppings. The Transportation Security Administration shared photos of the bag's gross contents on their social media accounts, proclaiming that “Mondays can really stink.”
Mondays can really stink. After a weekend of relaxation, the first day back at work can be hard to deal with. Here’s a nugget of wisdom to help get you through the day: “Monday is the day where the slate from the previous week is wiped clean; It is a day of new beginnings.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our team at Juneau International Airport (JNU) recently dealt with “nuggets” of a different variety when examining a passenger’s carry-on bag. Upon inspection, a large organic mass turned out to be a bag of moose nuggets (or feces, droppings, excrements, etc.) that the passenger was taking home from their Alaskan adventure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While TSA has no policies that would prevent you from traveling with a bag of animal poo, we would strongly suggest that you check with your airline on their policies. Several carriers do have rules in place to avoid smelly situations aboard their planes. Besides, having to leave your souvenirs behind would really stink. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #travel #traveling #traveltips #aviationlife #Juneau #Alaska #OnlyInAlaska
Lisa Farbstein, a spokesperson for the TSA, said the bag was flagged after scanning equipment detected a large mass of organic material inside of it. Since this is a sign of potential explosives, TSA officers were forced to check the bag.
Yes, you can bring moose poop to a checkpoint! And someone did last week at Juneau Int’l Airport. @TSA has no policy preventing people— TSAmedia_LisaF (@TSAmedia_LisaF) April 23, 2019

Farbstein also shared an image of the fecal on her Twitter page, saying “Yes, you can bring moose poop to a checkpoint! And someone did last week at Juneau Int’l Airport. @TSA has no policy preventing people from traveling with animal poop, but check with your airline on its policies because having to leave souvenir poop behind would be crappy.”
On Instagram, the TSA elaborated that the bag’s owners considered the “moose nuggets” souvenirs from his “Alaskan adventure.” Farbstein told Fox News that the man told the TSA officers that he likes to “present” the poop to politicians.
Local reports claim that a man was spotted protesting the governor’s proposed budget by handing out bags of “moose nuggets” on the capitol steps. It has not been confirmed that this was the same man from the airport.
