You know, that may have been the Vulture's way of saying, "thanks," like when our kitties bring us their kill, which really is an honor. It's just that creatures' tastes and ours are different!
Nice of your friend to help such a special critter!

She got out and managed to get the injured bird into a cat carrier, then off she went to Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, southwest Texas's most famous wildlife rescue organization. Once there, the bird was determined to have a broken wing. Before my friend left the office though, the kindly vulture regurgitated all over her in gratitude. She said it was the most horrendous stink she had ever smelled. She was covered with whatever dead thing the bird had eaten for supper. She made it home in record time and threw herself into a power shower but she could recall the odor for days after. They call buzzards and vultures in Texas "The Road Crew" because they clean up what careless motorists create. Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors too! _____ From: Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> To: email@example.com Sent: Monday, April 22, 2013 6:39 AM Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Turkey Vulture OT Enjoyed hearing about your turkey vulture..... Wow! I used to do wildlife rehab and had two young red tailed hawks who were brought to me when the tree their nest was in was cut down. They ate an entire raw chicken every day! My neighbor thought they needed bird seed and brought me some :-) She was old and meant well I guess, but those hawks had no desire for bird seed!
