Florida Man Hides Gun Inside Raw Chicken to Foil Airport Security

Half-cocked plan thwarted by quick-thinking TSA agents who spied pistol-packed poultry in carry-on bag.

The US Transportation Security Administration has caught an air traveler who had allegedly stashed a firearm inside a raw chicken in a bid to get the weapon through security at a Florida airport.

In a pun-laden post to its Instagram account, the TSA said the bizarre attempt had been foiled at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood international airport when eagle-eyed agents spied the handgun wrapped in tape and placed inside the bird’s cavity. The chicken was then hidden inside the traveler’s carry-on luggage.

“We hate to beak it to you here, but stuffing a firearm in your holiday bird for travel is just a baste of time,” the agency said in the jokey post. It added: “This idea wasn’t even half-baked; it was raw, greasy and obviously unsupervised. The only roast happening here is this poor packing choice!”
