Coyote delays jets at world's busiest airport

ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities say a coyote wandered onto a runway at the world's busiest airport in Atlanta, delaying flights for a few minutes until crews chased the animal away.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the flights were briefly delayed Tuesday afternoon at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the coyote was spotted on the south side of the airport around 3:30 p.m.

She said an airport vehicle chased the animal into a ravine, and flights resumed after about five minutes.
