Two Planes Collided With Deer In '03 And '04
Officials at the
Akron/Canton Airport outside of Akron, OH told the Associated Press
they plan to clear over 30 acres of woodland surrounding the
airfield, all in hopes of reducing the risks of aircraft coming in
contact with deer.
Sharpshooters have tried to cull the local cervine population,
according to Airport Director Fred Krum, with negligible results.
With the woods cut back, it is hoped the deer, no longer
sheltered from hunters and the elements -- will move on to other
areas far away from the busy airfield.
Authorities say two airplanes have collided with deer in the
past three years, including a Canadair CL-600 that struck a deer as
it was rotating for takeoff from the airport two years ago. The
Comair regional jet was able to circle back to the airport and land
The airport now needs approval of the plan from the Ohio State
Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the US Army Corps of
Engineers -- as the plan also involves filling in about 4 1/2 acres
of wetlands, as well.
Of course, if clearing the woods doesn't work, KACK officials
could always try an electrified mat to keep
