Kingston top dog at Shannon

THE US Customs and Border Pre-clearance facility at Shannon has welcomed a new agriculture canine enforcement team.
Kingston, a two-year-old beagle, arrived in Ireland last month and was reunited with his handler, CBP agriculture specialist Thanuja Hall. Shannon is now the only preclearance facility with an agriculture canine team.
“Kingston and I are excited to be the first line in defending American agriculture from harmful pests and disease prior to them entering the US as the only agriculture canine team at a pre-clearance facility,” said Ms Hall.
Port director Gregory Starr added, “We are very pleased to have CBP Agriculture Specialist Hall and her K-9 partner Kingston on board here in Shannon pre-clearance”
