I am really upset by this, but can see both sides. My family was in the cattle business and many years ago, before I was born, the vultures became so numerous & brazen that they would attack & begin eating calves when the calves were still in the process of being birthed. My family had to secure federal permits to trap & dispatch the birds, but the permissions were very limited in time, area, and even the actual process of shooting the birds (they had to construct a sort of chute/trap and then shoot the birds once they were confined). Does anyone have any insight on this behavior by the birds and the best resolution strategies? Does hanging a vulture in effigy truly discourage other birds? https://www.wrbl.com/alabama-news-2/turkey-vultures-roosting-near-opelika-middle-school-creating-health-concerns-and-controversy/
