Greetings:

On another out-of-state listserv, I read about research being conducted
in Florida to study the threat of Black Vultures to livestock,
specifically newborn calves as well as property depradation by roosting
vultures. Methods are being developed to help alleviate the problem using
various methods including chemical irritants and lethal shooting. These
methods seem a bit draconian to me. To read about this on the web, go to
this URL:

Does anyone know more about this research and how effective these methods
are?
