Signed, Sealed, Not Delivered

‘AIRPORT security is a lot tighter these days in the United States and smuggling the severed head of a seal onto a flight is no longer the doddle it once was.

Ask the Colorado man, who was arrested as Logan Airport in Boston for just that offence.

Airport officials discovered the severed head in a small canvas cooler as the man tried to board the plan for Denver and immediately notified state and federal authorities.

The man, who was in his 40s, claims to be a biology professor who found a dead seal on a beach and cut off its head so he could take it home for educational purposes.

The authorities eventually allowed the man to travel – although not with his head.’
