A Philadelphia pet store received a shipment this week that they thought was an order of tropical fish and salt water. The package turned out to be a dead body meant for a medical research laboratory. Pets Plus owner Mark Arabia says that the fish he was expecting are probably dead by now. From the AP:
US Airways released a statement saying the problem was caused by a "verbal miscommunication between a delivery driver and the cargo representative." The airline said it's deeply sorry."Pet store expects fish shipment, but gets corpse"
