‘Beagle Brigade’ helps Customs agents snatch slimy stowaways in Atlanta airport
Candie and Chipper are the heroes we never knew that we needed.
Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson airport is the business in the world, boasting an unprecedented amount of daily air traffic in and out of the City Too Busy to Hate.
And, given Atlanta’s reputation as the preeminent transportation hub of the east coast, (sorry NYC), there are no shortage of strange and wild items traversing this fine city.
Beware, however, if you should choose to attempt any sort of illegal smuggling in the capital of the south…they’ll send these good boys after you.
Customs and Border Protection agents in Georgia seized two Giant African Snails, a species that was once eradicated in the U.S., from the luggage of someone traveling back from Nigeria.
Candie and Chipper, two members of the “Beagle Brigade”, were on patrol at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Thursday when they alerted CBP’s Agricultural Specialists to an individual’s bag at the international arrival baggage claim area, the agency said in a press release.
After searching the suitcase, agents found two of the giant snails, alive, and several illegal fruits and vegetables that the Beagles also alerted agents to.
