TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – A 7-year-old border collie has become a popular topic on the Internet because of the job he performs at the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City.

Piper's main job at the airport is chasing birds, including geese, ducks and owls, off of the runways. He officially started working at the airport in January 2015.

Piper currently is recovering from a broken leg that he sustained in November when he jumped out of a pickup truck to chase a snowy owl.

Edwards says Piper is able to get around on three legs and will still be able to work.
