Many airports around the country battle problems with birds who nest near runways. But one area airport is fighting a whole different kind of animal problem.
Biologist Zachary Lissard says coyotes are causing safety problems at Acadiana Regional Airport.
The FAA asked Lissard to study wildlife around the airport after complaints that birds were being attracted by a nearby waste transfer station.
That study determined that a number of coyotes are living around the airport, and airplane lights make them freeze on the runway.
