Dayton Airport to install cameras to monitor coyotes

DAYTON

Officials at a southwest Ohio airport plan to use a camera surveillance project to monitor coyotes nearby, hoping to determine better strategies to keep them off the runways.

The Dayton Daily News reports the city has approved spending $20,000 on the six-month, high-resolution camera project at Dayton International Airport. The camera is to be used only to monitor wildlife in the area.

The airport is protected by 10-foot-high fencing that has kept away deer.

But coyotes and foxes still pose a problem, possibly by slipping under the fence.

Director of Aviation Terry Slaybaugh says a coyote found dead on a runway last year apparently had been hit by an aircraft.
