NBC News has the story of Sonic, the trusty Border Collie assigned to MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., to protect the base’s aircraft from flocks of birds. The rescue dog patrols the flight line every day chasing birds. The base does use cannons, but those can be predictable and birds get used to them, Sonic’s trainer Lindsey Garven told NBC. “I’m basically the chauffeur, and when I find the birds … I get as close as possible to them … and she goes after them,” Garven said. Check out the video to see Sonic in action.
