Man Attempts to Transport Whole Cougar Through Airport Security

According to Las Vegas police, a flyer was discovered by airport security at McCarran International Airport (LAS) to be smuggling a cougar carcass through security after returning from a hunting trip. McCarran spokesperson Melissa Nunnery confirmed that the flyer eventually shipped the cougar’s body home instead of bringing it aboard the flight.

    Smuggled? It was taken legally and no rule prohibited transport by air.

    Click bait BS as there was ZERO attempt to smuggle anything it was perfectly legal.

    Do some verification rather click baiting.
