Human Brain Headed For Wisconsin Confiscated at Canadian Border
I imagine having the job of border patrol means you pretty much NEVER have a boring day. I'm sure they see a lot of weird things. But some items come to the border that are a bit stranger and more concerning than others.
And this story gets even weirder because it happened on Valentine's Day. During an inspection of a Canadian mail truck, border patrol officers found a human brain inside of a clear glass mason jar without any paperwork or documentation in support of its lawful entry into the United States.
WTVO details -
The shipment manifest simply called the package an “Antique Teaching Specimen” which came from Toronto and was headed for Wisconsin.
What its purpose was going to be in Wisconsin I guess we'll never know.
The CDC says it has import regulations to protect the public from "infectious biological agents", "infectious substances" and "vectors".
So leave the brain at home next time.
