Customs Agents Seize Bag of Dead Birds From Passenger Traveling From China

https://www.theepochtimes.com/border-patrol-seizes-bag-of-dead-birds-from-passenger-traveling-from-china_3234436.html?fbclid=IwAR3zPqpVow1b7TcZtzu_UDRhaI0PHBeP6ympzxNvfPEHA3SU7s7UDs_0M8A


U.S. Customs agents said they seized a package of dead birds in a passenger’s baggage at the Washington Dulles airport, adding that the person recently traveled from China to the United States.

The person came from Beijing in late January and was heading to an address in Prince George’s County, Maryland, according to Customs and Border Protection (CPB) in a news release on Monday. That was before U.S. officials in early February implemented travel restrictions on passengers coming in from China to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The agents conducted an examination of the baggage, which had “pictures of a cat and dog that the passenger said was cat food,” according to the news release.

But instead, customs officials discovered the baggage actually “contained a bunch of unknown small birds, about 2.5 to 3.5 inches in length,” the agency said. Customs agents noted that birds from China cannot be imported into the United States due to the potential threat they might be carrying a form of avian influenza, which has ravaged Chinese poultry farms in recent years.




WHY???????????????????????????

EDIT: Can someone who knows the Chinese language please tell us what those words mean? I'm thinking now that this may be treats for cats and dogs. (Only because cats eats birds)

2nd EDIT: This is a screwed up cult newspaper that supports Trump. But the article is apparently true as I found it reported several other places. Also it actually was made as pet food.

In a statement, U.S. Customs officials said the package of dead birds was seized at Dulles International Airport on Jan. 27 from a passenger arriving from Beijing.

The passenger told officials the birds were cat food and that he was planning to bring them to Maryland after his flight.

CBP reinforces that birds from China are prohibited for import into the U.S. due to the possible spread of bird flu.
