Dead cougar found in man’s luggage at McCarran International Airport (KLAS)

One traveler’s holiday plans hit a snag after airport officials found a dead cougar in his luggage.

A Transportation Security Administration agent at McCarran International Airport discovered the carcass just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, according to Metropolitan Police Lt. David Gordon.

The cougar appeared to have a Utah State Fishing and Gaming tag, he said, but TSA agents held the man at the airport while they tried to confirm the validity of the tag.

“It is not a crime to transport game that is legal to possess via airlines,” Gordon said. “However, airlines reserve the right to tell passengers they do not want to transport certain items.”
