Vultures sold as roasted chicken
Apparently, one [Nigerian] vulture-roasting vendor's plan was disrupted last weekend by market officials when it was discovered he had stuffed ten live vultures in a large "Ghana-Must-Go (GMG) bag" -- and was planning to prepare them for roasting.... in India, the devastating decrease in vulture numbers has resulted in feral dog population explosion -- which in turn, has been linked to the spread of rabies in humans. According to recent articles in two Nigerian sources, The News and The PM News, the incident started when the vultures, suffering from the heat inside the bag, tore open a hole and attempted to escape. This unusual activity attracted the attention of a large curious crowd -- that soon became angry. Eyewitnesses were upset that vulture meat was being sold -- and eaten -- as chicken, noting that vulture meat is considered taboo by the people in the area.
