Post workers find monkey meat

 

A parcel containing monkey meat was discovered at a postal sorting office in Drogheda yesterday, the Department of Agriculture said. The package was understood to have contained the bodies of two monkeys and a number of monkey legs which were to be eaten. Customs officials are investigating and it is believed the package may have been sent from Nigeria. A department spokeswoman said the "bush meat" had been seized as it had entered the country illegally.
