Loud bangs are expected next week near Robins Air Force Base where wildlife will be shooed away from the runway.
With the help of a U.S. Department of Agriculture biologist, the 78th Air Base Wing will be dispersing birds and other wildlife that could cause flight hazards and damage to aircraft.
A nonlethal sound cannon will be installed and tested Monday through Friday on base.
“Be aware you may hear loud bangs on and off throughout the week,” according to a base news release.
The base is adjacent to diverse wildlife habitats in Houston County.
