US Customs and Border Protection officials discovered several packages containing human skulls last month after searching the packages at an international postal facility bound for Iowa, officials said.
The skulls were discovered in the International Mailroom at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport after CBP farming specialists determined the boxes “had anomalies,” prompting additional search logs.
“Our country’s food supply is under constant threat from pests and diseases not known to occur in the US These significant wiretaps by our CBPAS at the IMF in O’Hare illustrate the CBP’s continued commitment to protecting American agriculture.” called LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, Chicago Field Office Manager.
Officers scanned the three boxes and found two human skulls in one box — and two skulls in the other two boxes — covered in protective packaging often intended for shipping fragile items, the CBP said.
The unusual packages arrived in the United States from the Netherlands and were then transported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for additional testing, officials said.
Other strange packages intercepted by CBP officials included three individual Live Pole Moss bathmats that did not have proper travel authorization, officials said.
In all, CBPAS officers seized 1,667 agricultural shipments containing prohibited items, according to the report.
