NYPD Warns Public About Low Flying Airplane Surveying Deer Over Bronx & SI Parks

Bronx/Staten Island

The NYPD issued an alert today involving a small aircraft which is going to be flying over Bronx and Staten Island parks this evening and tomorow. 

On Friday, February 7th and Saturday, February 8th at 6PM an independent contractor will conduct an aerial survey (weather permitting) of the deer population over various parks in the Bronx and Staten Island.  The survey will consist of one (1) single-engine aircraft that will utilize an infrared camera, known as Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), to measure the temperature difference between the deer and the surrounding environment.  The aircraft will originate from and return to Linden Airport (NJ) and will survey transects of parkland at an altitude of approximately 1,000 feet.
