13 Pounds Of Horse Genitals Found In Luggage at Washington Dulles

Fri Feb 17, 2017 6:18 am

The full release from CBP:

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialists have seen some really unusual things in traveler baggage at Washington Dulles International Airport over the years. From charred full monkeys, to voodoo ceremony tools, to cocaine concealed inside the cavity of fully cooked chickens, to live sea horses and giant African land snails. So it seems that after a while, the oddity is not so odd anymore.

Then two women arrived from Mongolia on January 29 with horsemeat concealed inside juice boxes, including 13 pounds of horse genitals that one woman claimed were for medicinal purposes.

After they deplaned, CBP officers referred the women for a routine agriculture examination. There, CBP agriculture specialists discovered a combined 42 pounds of meat described as horsemeat and other ruminant meat, including 13 pounds of horse genitals, and three liters of yak milk.

Horsemeat is prohibited from entering the United States if it is not accompanied by an official government horsemeat certification from the country or government it originates. Otherwise, CBP treats it as unknown ruminant meat and seizes it due to fears of foot and mouth disease. Horsemeat from Mongolia is prohibited due to concerns of introducing animal diseases to U.S. livestock industries.

“Customs and Border Protection takes no pleasure in seizing and destroying travelers’ food products,” said Wayne Biondi, CBP Port Director for the Area Port of Washington Dulles. “We’re in the business of protecting America’s agriculture industries, like the livestock industry, from the potential introduction of animal diseases posed by these unpermitted food products.”

CBP incinerated all food products.

Neither woman was criminally charged. CBP officers released them to continue their visit."

I have a friend that works for CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) as an officer. He's seen some weird stuff as well as a trade officer just auditing and inspecting shipping containers...

So yeah, a lot of weird stuff gets shipped around the world.

I have been to Mongolia and it is an amazing country with incredible people.

What is strange to people in the USA isn't strange to Mongolians. Thus they are likely to use yak milk to make fermented drinks such as arkhi, a type of milk vodka.

http://www.mongolia-trips.com/5-most-co ... s-mongolia

Mongolians also enjoy an alcoholic product called airag, which is fermented mares's milk. They also eat horse meat and it's sometimes used to make a type of cured sausage.

There's much more too. You guys should do a little research on Mongolian customs. They're interesting to say the least.

You win! Best one yet!

Semi-related question though - how proactive are the customs staff at IAD? Unless she declared it, how likely is it that she will be 'referred' to a search?

I think they are fairly proactive, I've seen articles like this fairly regularly (although this isn't what I wanted to hear first thing on the morning news today...)

In Greece we call them "unthinkables" or better,"unmentionables".It is difficult to translate.The term refers to a bull's edible twin "delicates". As for milk vodka it reminds me of the days I worked at a hotel many years ago.One day at the bar,an SAS pilot showed us how to make a drink which he called "lulumba". He used vodka(?), evaporated milk and cherry liquor....

How do you know if you've eaten horse-meat? Half an hour later you've still got a bit between your teeth.

Horse meat is nothing special, you could eat it without realizing it's not beef.

I'm not a big fan of offals but horse balls should be similar to what you call Rocky Mountain oysters in North America.

Way less offensive than beating dead meat.

Horse genitals at a DC airport? One could argue that there have been horse genitals in DC for years

Now I remembered something. I may have known the SAS pilot who was able to do that emergency landing on Christmas day many years ago. He managed to "aquaplane" his crippled MD-80 and crash-land it in the fields. Nobody was hurt. It was mr.Rasmussen. There were two pilots with their families who visited twice. Now,HE had balls...

I don't think anyone is disputing that, but by now people should be aware of what they can and cannot bring into a foreign country or at least explain why it wasn't mentioned on the customs card they filled out before arrival!

My friend that works as a customs officer remarks that even today, there are people that don't understand the customs process and just blindly fill out the card without bothering to understand what the card means.

If you watched the show Border Security, you will get a very quick understanding of what border officers have to deal with on a regular basis from travelers just not understanding what's going on.
