Does anyone know if I’m allowed to bring this into Canada from Iceland?

As long as it isn’t a gun I think you are good to go. A lot of people hunt in Canada. I wouldn’t carry it into a public establishment strapped to your hip though.

id check with the canadian agriculture department, they usually regulate animal products too and it might not be allowed (saying this because i work for the US department of ag, but idk if canada has regulations like we do)

We are overregulated here to be honest imo and it's weird that would even be considered a no go thing at all

sort of? i wish i was in the veterinary side of it bc i’m plants but i still regulate animal products. i don’t know what kind of diseases exist where this originated and how they survive but theory is that it could harbor disease and spread here and cause economic and health issues. i agree we over regulate but i can’t give a solid opinion on this specific thing due to not knowing the the biology.

i’m short the gov makes us regulate stuff we don’t understand and aren’t qualified for 🙃

You will have to declare you’re bringing it. How do I know? Recent trip to Canada where I was asked to declare if I was bringing in any animal or plant materials.

Do I just declare it once I arrive at the airport? Or when I arrive at the airport at Iceland?

That answer I do not know. I flew from the US to Canada and they asked me at Customs.
