Airport 1, coyote 0:
from Herald
Coyote killed at Logan Airport

By Joe Dwinell
Wednesday, May 6, 2009 -

A wily coyote blocked jets from landing on a runway at Logan International Airport today while workers chased it down.

The coyote was run over and killed by a Logan truck. Airport officials were worried the animal would pose a danger to a jet if it ever got sucked into a jet engine.

“We had to close a runway for 4 to 5 minutes,” said airport spokesman Phil Orlandella. “It didn’t cause any delays.”

He said the plan was to keep the coyote off any active airfield, but the pesky pup slipped past them and onto the runway.

Orlandella said jets were able to land on other runways. And, no pilot heroics were required.
