Customs Beagle Sniffs Out Pig Head in Luggage
If you're a dog with a job, is finding a pig head in somebody's luggage considered a bonus?
Hardy is a six-year-old rescue who is a member of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's "Beagle Brigade." While working alongside Customs officials at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Hardy made a huge discovery.
The K-9 sniffed out a roasted pig head in some luggage that had arrived from Ecuador.
"Our best defense against destructive pests and animal diseases is to prevent the entry of prohibited agriculture products from entering the United States," the CBP port director said. The pig's head was destroyed by authorities.
"This seizure at ATL illustrate the tremendous expertise of our four-legged K-9 partners in protecting the United States."
