Cattle prod discovery at Dulles Airport makes TSA's list of top 10 unusual finds in 2022


As 2022 wraps up, the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) is releasing its annual list of unusual security checkpoints nationwide, and an odd find at Dulles International Airport in Virginia made the top ten!

That find was two electric cattle prods packed alongside a guitar inside a carry-on guitar case.

According to TSA, the items could be checked, but were not permitted to be carry-on items.


TSA did not indicate what prompted the traveler to pack the cattle prods in their guitar case.

The discovery of the cattle prods came in at number eight on the TSA's list of unusual finds for 2022.
