Vultures personified are paparazzi. Some paparazzi use Canon kit, so it is of relevance to the Canon forum...

or

The victim was french. Some french people use Canon kit, so it is of relevance to the Canon forum...


I can keep these coming if you like

Don't be sorry; you're absolutely right.

Could a moderator please move this to where it belongs? (The "Miscellaneous" thread, or -- better yet -- the trash bin.)

It's to help insure the safty of Bird shooters who may wish to capture photos with there Canon gear... to not get inticed into shooting large groups of the Raptors... They need to be aware of the change in eating habits...

View it as a public service announcement...

Thanks for the interesting read, Jefferson. I can't help myself though:

ensure, not insure

their, not there

entice, not intice

Just consider it a PSA

As we continue to populate, build on nature's natural areas we will see more of this type of wild animal behavior. My sister lives in Phoenix, AZ and sees coyotes often roaming the neighborhoods for strays, they even venture into backyards for a puppy and/or kitty snack. With a 6ft plus wing span Vultures can be quite the problem, given our crowding them, starving them, we could indeed be easy pickings...kinda glad I'm not a birder

French cuisine consumers taste better and are more healthy than fast food consumers, so the tourists, under some circumstances, may be safer from picky vultures than the French.

That said, if you have already fallen off the cliff, it won't make much difference to you.

In 2009, coyotes killed a young female jogger in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, NS. It was a very sad and surprising event. The coyotes up here are getting pretty big. Last year, an 82 pound male coyote was shot in NS. These coyotes are probably actually coywolves, which is a coyote/wolf hybrid. Apparently, they think humans are prey, as evidenced by many recent incidents. In the past three years, all such incidents (including a pack checking out a schoolyard at recess time, one chasing a kid into his house, and one trying to dismount a youth from his mountain bike - saved by kevlar leg pads) have all ended well for the humans, fortunately.

P.S. I'm not at all surprised that the "Canon connection" argument didn't hold up to moderator scrutiny.

Poor vultures. They are just starving and trying to clean up a mess.

The title is awful and implies that the tourist was alive. It should say something about a human carcass or remains.
