What Do You Want To Do? I Don’t Know, What Do You Want To Do?

Today there was a somewhat interesting sight along a road near us that is fairly heavily traveled. I should note that this road, like many roads, is lined with lamp posts that stick out over the street. Recently, a deer had been hit by someone and was still by the side of the road. And, as usual, where dead things are, scavengers are there as well – in this case, large, black, flying scavengers. As you can see from the pictures, though, the vultures weren’t actually eating the deer, probably because of the constant stream of cars or because they had already their fill.

Either way, the vultures were just enjoying each other’s company on the lamp posts, waiting until they could eat again. It actually looked quite comical with 3-8 vultures on each lamp post all along this road. I guess the deer will be cleaned up quickly at this rate!

  1. Here, when we see dead animals we have to notify the various authorities: https://derrickjknight.com/2013/02/22/a-sad-duty/

    • I’m sure (?) they were notified since it’s been there for days, but our county is notoriously slow in picking them up – even when the animal is right next to someone’s driveway. Now I’m wondering if it was reported. Maybe I’ll just make sure a phone call is made today. Thanks, Derrick.
