Breaking News

Authorities confiscated and “destroyed” giraffe dung that an individual attempted to bring into the U.S. with the plan of turning it into a necklace, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release.

The individual said she had procured the poop in Kenya.

“On September 29, a passenger returning from Kenya arrived at MSP and was selected for inspection by CBP agriculture specialists,” the CBP press release explains. “The passenger declared giraffe feces and stated she had obtained the droppings in Kenya and planned to make a necklace. The passenger also stated in the past she had used moose feces at her home in Iowa. Agriculture Specialists seized the box, and the excrement was destroyed via steam sterilization per United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) destruction protocol.”

“There is a real danger with bringing fecal matter into the U.S.,” LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, CBP Director, Field Operations-Chicago Field Office, noted, according to the press release. “If this person had entered the U.S. and had not declared these items, there is high possibility a person could have contracted a disease from this jewelry and developed serious health issues.”
