Believe It Or Not, Here's A Vulture Update.

Stan Freberg here with a vulture update. We hear agents or lawyers laughingly referred to as "vultures" sometime; but here's a real vulture story. After this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. With a loaded shotgun by her back door, Lynn Yates of Stafford County, Virginia says she lives in terror of the dozens of black vultures that gather each morning on her back fence, stretch their wings, and wait for lunch.

"Lunch" has recently meant assorted pets. Hmm. When she tried to rescue a pet duck, for example, a vulture swooped to within 3 feet of her head! She's even videotaped them circling children as they got off a bus.

The problem is vultures are a protected species and can't be shot without a permit. She says a game warden advised her she'd probably be safe while feeding her animals, but "...whatever you do," he said, "don't lie down." Hmm.

That's all from the vulture desk.
