Large Live Lobster Caught At TSA Checkpoint

BOSTON (CBSDFW.COM) - A passenger at Boston Logan Airport packed a 20-plus pound lobster in a piece of luggage on Sunday.

While there was nothing wrong, TSA tweeted a photo of it.

According to the TSA, live lobsters are allowed but must be in clear, spill proof containers.

Lobsters are said to be common sight at New England airports, but this one was larger than most.

The TSA told Boston CBS station WBZ-TV that the lobster was traveling in a cooler and was alive and well.
