“We Want The Government To Punish Vultures For Being Vultures!”

The body of a 52-year-old woman who fell to her death in the Pyrenees was devoured by Griffon vultures before emergency services were able to retrieve it.

Furious locals are demanding that authorities take action against the endangered carrion-eaters after they left only the woman’s bones, clothes and shoes for burial.

What sort of action? Convert them to vegetarianism?

‘When we first went out in the helicopter looking for the body, we saw numerous vultures without realising what they were doing,’ he said.

*boggle*

Naturally, the cold dead hand of the EU has been involved:

For centuries, the Pyrenean farmers lived in symbiotic harmony with the griffon vulture. Wheeling over their flocks and fields, the birds were seen as neither a threat nor even a nuisance, but as a vital part of the ecosystem.

When farmers had to dispose of a dead animal, they would simply take it to one of hundreds of carcass dumps scattered across the moutains where the scavengers gathered to do their work.

But now, after an EC ruling that dead animals must be burned due to the danger of BSE transmission, the vultures’ food supply has been critically lowered and they have been forced to spread further afield.

I have a perfect solution – strangle every last EU bureaucrat. It should keep the vultures happily fed for years!

    Looks like the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences’ strikes again. In a similar vein, support for single mothers was designed to help those women in abusive relationships and not as has turned out, to create a massive number of state supported single mothers which in turn has caused men to become more irresponsible. It looks like the eurocrats forgot to look ahead and see what might happen if you deprive vultures of their traditional food source.

    The paper threat backed by financial penalty the only weapon the bureaucrats possess. What I cannot get my head round is how subservient the entire populations of numerous countries has become to words on paper.
    The majority of the human race are headless chickens.

      The average european brain no longer copes with the endless nonsensical stream of bureau-shite flowing from Brussels, now in the proccess of severe retardation it will not be long before the european mind disintegrates completely, our government is a prime example of Euro-obediance.

    I love the thought of Vultures circling over Brussels and Strasbourg, and Westminster is only 190 Miles from Brussels as the vulture flies
