I have been watching The zoo on itv channel tonight. My ears popped open at a section discussing the white rumped vulture. I really love vultures and think they do an invaluable cleaning up job in the wild lol! These birds have declined by 99 per cent in the last ten years in Nepal, the main reason the speaker gave was diclofenac. It is a pain killing drug given to the cows, when the cattle is eventually dies and are eaten by the vultures it is fatal to them.
So London zoo are encouraging farmers to used alternative pain killers , I use diclofenac! Thank goodness I am neither a cow or a vulture!! Just interesting though I noticed , do u like vultures? xxxx
