A species needs to eat.

Vultures are only interested in dead bodies and pose no risk to live animals.

But the species is protected in France and has lost access to its normal diet of carcasses due to European health and safety regulations.

LOL

Liberals and their unintended consequences...

These vultures convert farm animals into dead bodies.

Same problem here with progressives. These vultures will eat anything dead or dying.

There are some vultures in my area that are taking great interest in my chickens when I put them out in their tractor.

the birds, known as Griffon Vultures,

Well, they weren’t called Griffon because they were
warm and cuddly.

Weren’t Griffons part bird and part lion?

During a tour of a Tanzanian national park we came upon a pack of hyenas and several vultures feasting on what the guide said was a young wildebeest.It’s a scene that’s seared into my memory.

Man that is a quick clean up. Beats merry maids by a long shot. But the didn’t properly dispose of the shoes and clothing. Trashy dang birds. I read somewhere that the europeans must now burn the bodies of their farm animals to prevent the spread of disease. BBQ?

From what I've been reading about these vultures, dead isn't all that important. Apparently they will attack and eat living livestock.

Bunk

Here in Texas buzzards will go after a cow that is calving and kill both cow and calf.

Vultures will do the same.

'Hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms.'

Zoroastrians, use a Dakhma, or 'tower of silence' for their dead.

Basically, they drop off their dead, the vultures, crows, and other carrion eaters clean up up the rest.

Some years we get buzzards so bad there will be close to 100 circling over a cow off by herself looking for a place to calf.

Too much Animal Planet for you. Like carnivores everywhere, vultures aren't as picky as they are billed. Many vulture species are quite willing and certainly capable of killing in order to eat. New born animals that are slow to get moving fall into their meal plan.

In the regular order, vultures eat dead animals. If the French now demand that the dead animals be buried...well, the vultures still have to eat. Good lesson for all the econuts: Don't mess with Mother Nature.

>>>”pose no danger to live animals”>>>>

That is not true. When we have calves born in the pasture, vultures will come for the afterbirth and finish off the calf by first pecking their eye balls out. My husband shoots every one he can. Usually just shooting at them will make them move on to the next pasture, They are not stupid.

Fair enough, but it’s not helping to cut down on easily accessible dead animals.

The farmers are reporting seeing them harass and kill livestock.

Indeed.

“Ugh, nasty. Imagine having to clean up the remainders. “

Considering it took only 50 minutes, it doesn’t sound like they shared that opinion.

Turkey vultures (we call them buzzards) keep the roads clean of roadkill here in Florida. They are very efficient at it.

In some Tibetan Buddhist sects, that sort of thing is called a “Sky Burial”, and it’s considered a great honour.

We used to have only turkey vultures in NJ. Black vultures have moved in and will attack newborn calves and lambs.

In the order of nature, wild vultures eat the remains of wild animals. Are the wild animals no longer dying due to European health regulations? I would like to see that in practice.

We have tons of vultures here in the states and we also dispose of dead animals when they are in public places or can be sold for tankage.
