Hopefully.....this meat wasn't on its way to the upcoming La Porte County fair.

32 pounds of African rat meat were confiscated at Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

It was later destroyed.

Authorities say African meats are not allowed into the country.....to prevent the spread

of African swine fever which infects only pigs.

The man trying to import the rat meat was allowed to go because of his full cooperation.
