Father, son cited for hunting at Pittsburgh airport

IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) A father and son have been cited for hunting at Pittsburgh International Airport.

The airport contains about 9,000 acres, much of it densely wooded. Officials say that makes it a tempting area for hunters but still illegal.

Sixty-three-year-old William Kuriger Jr. was dropping off his son, 43-year-old William, to hunt on Tuesday. The father was cited for disorderly conduct while the son was cited for criminal trespass and illegally carrying a gun onto airport property.

The son tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he wasn't close to airport buildings or runways, and says they won't go back there to hunt.

The airport's deer herd is thinned by 12 hunters who work in conjunction with air traffic controllers and other officials to ensure safety.
