We have to be accepting of the fact that we live in a society where we share air, land and even space with wildlife and in which we have no control! The vultures are intimidating specimens and it wont be long before they come down off of tha roof; thereby, we might see a real live Alfred Hitchcock reenactment of the movies "The Birds"

I say take a shot at them and watch them check out!!

We have a pair of vultures in the Aspen Hill area of Silver Spring. Coincidentally, the crows that have been tearing our garbage bags apart & making a mess of our streets every Wed & Sat (trash day) for the last 5 months have disappeared. think the vultures scared 'em off? hmmm....

These vultures are threatening the security of my home.

A vulture came into my home and took several loaves of bread, packages of soup and a basket of potatoes. The frightening thing is when it saw me it came flying after me. I ran down the hallway into my bedroom and shut my door. I peeked out and as it flew down the hallway and then went into my kitchen, it took another loaf of bread and went outside. That's when I followed it and closed the door on my back porch. The next day the vulture came in again. These birds are very intimidating and they are not afraid of us since they are use to eating dead bodies. Several years ago a vulture swept down and took my daughter's kitten and ate it.

I now fear for my grandson's safety. If this vulture can drag out a basket of potatoes, it can drag him out.

No longer can I leave my door or my windowns open for even a short time. My neighbors are also having problems. Apparently, the law is protecting these dangerous birds.

I saw a vulture in the middle of my street eating a dead cat. Every time a car would pass it flew to the trees,and return to finish. Later that day i saw a pair flying around the area.

I'm right around the corner from Arundel mills to and I agree with chris. TAKE THEM BACK! It seems they are getting more aggressive. I watched a group of them attack a lady and her lab walking down the street. Its scary!

The Turkey Vultures eat the dead animals and the other black vultures will swoop down and take and eat your pets
