When Chinese customs officers stopped a dubious-looking shipment, they couldn’t be sure exactly what horrors they’d find within.

On November 29, 2017, customs authorities in Shenzhen, China, revealed that they’d made a startling discovery. Yes, back in July of that same year, the team had stopped a shipment of goods coming into Yantian District’s port. And while officials knew that suspicious circumstances surrounded the crate, they weren’t sure of its precise contents.
