Hare Traffic Control: Rabbits Shut Airport

Milan's Linate airport was closed early Sunday while 200 hunters tried to outfox scores of hares infesting its runways. The operation was ordered after hares became tangled in aircraft landing gear twice in recent weeks. Officials say at least 80 hares are living on the airport grounds, confusing radar equipment and endangering flights taking off and landing.
