The International Airport Development Company (IADC) is pleading with owners of livestock that are currently grazing at the site of the Argyle international airport to remove their animals from the site immediately.{{more}}

A release from the IADC said for some time now, the company has been asking the owners of these animals that are roaming the site to have them removed, but to no avail. These animals are increasingly posing several problems at the site, resulting in the slowing down of the work.

“The animals are getting in the way of truck drivers who at times have to stop to chase them away and they are now roaming on the runway creating another set of problems in that area. In addition to slowing down the work, the animals are getting into sensitive areas by breaching the fencing around these areas.

“IADC will not hold itself responsible for any harm that may come to these animals and so we are again appealing to the owners to find alternative grazing areas for these animals. If these animals are not removed, the IADC will be forced to use legal measures to ensure that they are removed,” the release said.
