Frozen Monkey Heads

From the NY Daily News:

The Weird and Wacky Stuff Confiscated at New York Customs

Attention, airline passengers: Leave the chain saws, chocolate-covered heroin bars and frozen monkey heads at home.

An Australian traveler made worldwide headlines last month when he tried to smuggle two live pigeons past airport security by concealing them against his legs under a pair of tights.

Customs and Transportation Security Administration officials at New York airports say they have just as many wacky tales to tell.

In recent months, agents have seized everything from a drug-stuffed dead cat to a 7-pound shipment of chocolate-coated heroin bars.
