SHERIDAN, NY - A family in Chautauqua County is mourning the loss of one of their horses. And while, the family continues to grieve, they also want some action from county officials to change how aircraft land at the Dunkirk Airport.
"She's part of our family, this is where we come and have camp fires and horseback rides and camping and she's missing," said Lisa Herc.
Lisa and her family are grieving the loss of one of the family's horses, named "Jazz," who the Hercs consider as part of the family.
"I think right now it just hurts, you lost something, when you lose something, you love it just hurts," Herc said.
The Hercs own a horse farm in the Town of Sheridan. The farm is near the Chautauqua County/Dunkirk Airport. Last Thursday afternoon, Herc says a helicopter -- preparing to land at the airport flew right over the farm, scaring the three horses that stay here.
