The Turkey Vulture species receives special legal protections under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 in the United States,[8] by the Convention for the Protection of Migratory Birds in Canada,[41] and by the Convention for the Protection of Migratory Birds and Game Mammals in Mexico.[41] In the USA it is illegal to take, kill, or possess Turkey Vultures, and violation of the law is punishable by a fine of up to 15,000 US dollars and imprisonment of up to six months.[40] It is listed as a species of Least Concern by the IUCN Red List. Populations appear to remain stable, and it has not reached the threshold of inclusion as a threatened species, which requires a decline of more than 30 percent in ten years or three generations.[1]

They are in the raptor family (Eagles/Hawks/Vultures) and carry a stiff fine....leave them alone. They areyour best friend and wil keep your woods CLEAN. Go shoot an armadillo.

They eat dead critters, they don't tote off live cows or goats.

After they ate the upholstery out of my boat seats and the carpet off of the floor of my boat last year, they had better find a new place to be other than my place.

That is probably the best tasting bird you will ever eat.

I now by looking at him it looks bad ,but once you get over that it is pretty good, try one

No they dont just eat dead critters Post #13
Yes they do kill cows and goats -- they eat live ones on a regular basis . You are sadly mistaken and its very obvious with your statements that your not in the Livestock or Dairy buisness . Just a guess but you probably buy meat/milk at the super market and dont raise it . Go ask some one who does and see what kind of response you get . Buzzards kill newborn calves with ease , Ive seen it . I ve also seen them eat the rear out of a live cows that get down sick / or giving birth . ''NEWS FLASH '' You cant just doctor up a live cow/calf who's had its guts ripped out/eaten out it from its ''Back door'' or eyeballs eaten out . And Yes they will kill a goat that gets hung up in a fence , each time we have to finish off the animal --not for the weak at heart . They are without a doubt a real live stock predator, worse than any yote pack I've ever had to deal with . I know from experince dealing with them .
THEY ARE NOT YOUR BEST FRIEND .
I'm just telling you a few facts from my 1st hand exp ,take it for what its worth .
