Coyote makes run across airport grounds
The construction of a new fence separating a wooded area from the Oconee Regional Airport near Clemson was aimed at stopping deer from roaming the airport grounds and runway. That fence has helped, but the airport noted the appearance recently of another unwanted visitor, akin to the wolf family. A coyote was spotted making its way across airport property. By re-enforcing a section of fence where rainfall has eroded the ground beneath, airport management believes it has filled the coyote’s entry point.
