Hares straying too close to the runways at Dublin Airport in Ireland are being sucked up into the engines of taxiing planes, reports said.

There have been 54 incidents of animals being “ingested” by plane engines since Jan. 1 of this year, The Irish Post reported, citing data from the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).
