DIA paying big bucks to scare away birds.

May 12, 2009

Denver International Airport is so huge that it has the highest rate of wildlife hitting  planes. The airport plans to spend nearly $350,000 on wildlife mitigation in the next year, reports the Denver Post.

Four full-time biologists will spend their days wandering around the 52 miles surrounding the airport, launching pyrotechnic shots at birds. Lethal methods are used to keep the runways clear. There are tons of rabbits and prairie dogs out there. Must be good eatings for the reptilian aliens down below.
