Gun stuffed in raw chicken found at Florida airport checkpoint

Transportation Security Administration agents recently intercepted a raw whole chicken with a handgun shoved inside, according to a post on social media.

TSA officials said the gun was found at a security checkpoint at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Photos posted online show a raw chicken in sealed plastic.

Once cut open, the photos show the firearm wrapped inside a bag inside the chicken with part of the handle sticking out.

It is unclear if the gun was loaded or if the gun’s owner is facing criminal charges.

According to TSA guidelines, the agency could impose civil penalties exceeding $10,000.
