What happened: The police had to move up because a herd of almost 500 sheep, including donkeys and horses, were grazing too close to the airport.
Because of an increased risk of bird strikes, the police politely asked the shepherd to graze his animals outside this area. The 53-year-old then complied with this request without any objection. The animals would have grazed under the supervision of the shepherd "comfortably outside the area at the fence". However, the flock on Saturday posed the risk that nesting birds would be startled and fly into the approach lane, like aero.de reported.
