Gruesome finds by Australia’s border security



A mummified pig foetus, deer genitalia and human teeth in a rat’s body are just some of the strange items that biosecurity teams have found in passenger belongings and mail coming into Australia recently. Despite COVID-19 shutting down most air travel, officers have been kept busy filtering out items that pose a risk to human and animal health. Quails and other poultry can carry Avian influenza, while deer genitalia intercepted at Cairns Airport could’ve been carrying foot and mouth disease. One resident from Bali arrived with squirrels concealed on their body which can carry rabies. Listen to Colleen Eiser, National Technical Manager of Detector Dogs, share their whacky stories with 11News.
