Now, stray dogs are the new menace at airport

Fencing and construction of perimeter walls have largely resolved the problem of stray cattle intruding into the operational area of Surat airport, but the authorities are now facing a new challenge.
Dog menace has increased at Surat airport premises in last few months when the work for extension of the runway began what with the presence of construction workers inside and outside the airport area.
Stray dogs from nearby areas of Bhimpore and Magdalla sneak into the operational area of the airport through the openings in the fencing and loiter around in search of food.
Sources said shrimp farms around the airport attract stray dogs in huge numbers. At present, harvesting season is going on and the farm owners throw dead shrimps, which attract stray dogs. Few days ago, dead shrimps were found inside the airport premises. The farm owners might have thrown the stock inside the airport premises, instead of ensuring proper disposal of the waste.
