No doubt a comfort animal. He was more comfortable with it dead in a bag than sitting on his lap.

Maybe the odd live cougar from time to time would cut back on some of the TSA thefts.

I find this concerning. The reason the TSA has a right to look in luggage, is because of safety concerns. Obviously there were no safety concerns. So the TSA should shut the bag and move along. They do not need to tell the airline, nor the press. Nor do they need to hold the person until the validity of the tag can be ascertained.

““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.””

I don’t care what kind of animal you are.

You cheat the house, you wind up in some luggage.
