ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Customs officers say they discovered a dolphin skull in luggage left at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Friday that agents found the skull last week when they conducted a routine X-ray scan of the luggage, which had been inadvertently separated from owners during transit. The scans revealed the skull of a young dolphin in one of the bags.
According to CBP, importing or exporting marine mammals is prohibited. The skull was turned over to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service investigators.
