    Bird strikes cause damage in the millions to aircraft every year and shooing them away is a difficult task. Airport operators use everything from propane cannons to rubber owl and, in the case of Cherry Capital Airport in Michigan, a smart-as-whip Border Collie. In this exclusive video from Great Big Story productions, see how a dog named Piper gets it done.

    Ya gotta just love Piper!
