The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) shared an odd sighting at the baggage claim of an airport last week.
"Can chickens fly? Well… assuredly no poultry is flying like this. We hear at one time these wings and thighs were cooped up in a cooler. Somewhere between baggage and the carousel they became free range," the TSA wrote on Instagram, tagging Seattle, Washington as a location, though not identifying any airport in particular.
TSA used the humorous discovery as a teaching lesson for future passengers.
"Don’t wing your travel packing. In order to keep from ruffling any feathers meat should be properly packaged. Ice or dry ice is permitted to keep the flock chilled.
"If you are pecking around the internet for travel tidbits, nest time reach out to our hens and roosters at #AskTSA. They’ll take your raw travel questions and cook out an egg-cellent answer."
No additional information has been provided how or why the large cube of uncooked chicken was riding on the carousel or whether it was claimed by an individual.
