It's not every day border patrol agents find a human brain in a jar aboard a Canadian mail truck on its way to Kenosha.
But that's what happened Feb. 14 at a checkpoint along the U.S.-Canada border in Port Huron, Michigan.
And although the truck's shipping manifest listed the brain as an "antique teaching specimen," the clear glass jar would never make it to a classroom. It lacked any paperwork or documentation, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Agents seized the brain and are in contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the agency said in a news release.
The shipment, which came from Toronto, was destined for Kenosha. It was not immediately clear where exactly the brain was from, or if it was meant to be used for educational purposes.
The agency reminded people that shipments such as human specimens require an import permit.
