TSA Finds Chihuahua Inside Checked Bag at LaGuardia Airport

The dog climbed in the suitcase while the owner was packing.

— -- TSA agents find plenty of odd items in travelers' suitcases, but a live Chihuahua may top the list.

The dog was discovered inside a checked bag at LaGuardia Airport this week after an officer responded to an alarm, the TSA said in an Instagram post showing the dog - and the suitcase it was found inside.

"It's always important to double check your bags before traveling," the post read, "especially to make sure your Chihuahua hasn't stowed away inside one of them."

The TSA said that the dog climbed in while its owner was packing. The owner and pet have since been reunited.
