Border guards seize meat at Pearson

The Canadian Border Services Agency intercepted 27 kilograms of raw meat as passengers arrived at Pearson International Airport on a flight from Egypt.

They took beef, goose and small birds.

They lied on their declaration that they were not bringing in any plants or meat.

Egypt had an outbreak of a new form of foot and mouth disease in 2012 that killed thousands of animals.

The meat was detected by one of the agency's sniffer dogs.
