A few weeks ago, security screeners at the BWI Thurgood Marshall airport got two surprises at the security checkpoint. X-ray machines detected a semi-automatic handgun and a pet carrier with a small dog inside. Many pet carriers look like duffel bags and the officials didn’t realize what the carrier was until they saw the animal’s skeleton on the X-ray image.

The TSA reminds passengers firearms are never allowed at checkpoints. As for pets, they should be taken out of the carrier and carried through checkpoints and not sent through X-ray.

Thwarted by the x-ray machines- thank you, x-rays!
