US transport officials have roasted a passenger online after they were caught trying to smuggle a gun on to a plane by hiding it inside a raw chicken.
The fowl plot was cracked by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport.
The traveller’s weapon was spotted before boarding stuffed inside the bird and wrapped in paper packaging.
TSA officers joked on Instagram that the scheme “wasn’t even half-baked”.
