Conservationists suspect EU regulations on dead animal removal have caused the griffon vulture population in Spain's Hoces del Río Riaza National Park to plummet.

The EU is responsible for huge flocks of vultures descending on unsupecting citizens of the EU They are called MEPs! They can be observed at their feeding troughs in Strasburg and Brussels wasting money fistly by hopping between the two in their rediculous migration dance and then require us to do the most wasteful things like through dead fish back into the sea make fruit conform to size guides and in case you wondered they claim bigger expenses than UK MPs! Total waste of shipping space hand them them over to the real vultures for their dinner!

Carcass removal is also thought to be causing the vultures in the Pyrenees mountains (not the elected ones, Chris ;) to attack cattle and sheep to get food, which is not their normal behaviour. There have been a number of animals seriously injured or killed by these hungry birds. Thanks Cher.
