Owl family stalls stadium AstroTurf plan

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Some owls have stalled a plan to put in AstroTurf at the NMSU football stadium.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports a family of western burrowing owls has moved into a section of Aggie Memorial Stadium.

The college says it will wait until the birds’ hatching period is over to put in the turf. That will likely be sometime this summer.
