The Transportation Security Administration has discovered some strange items this week, including a six-pack of nunchucks, other sharp objects, and most recently, a dog in a backpack.
At the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wisconsin, “a dog was accidentally sent through the X-ray” this week, the TSA reported on its verified Great Lakes area Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon. The TSA stated that animals must be removed from carrying cases and the empty carrier must be screened. The agency said, “When flying with any animal, tell your airline and know their policies.”

If you think your pet will attempt an escape, ask to speak with a supervisor before removing the animal. Alternative screening options may be available. (2/2) pic.twitter.com/NL2jNjni2l
