ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- We upgraded the view of vultures with a little help from World Bird Sanctuary.
Operations Director Roger Holloway pointed out that the scavenger birds clean up carcasses and prevent the spread of disease.
However, a pain-killer is killing vultures. Several cattle ranchers around the world are giving their herd Diclofenac, which is causing vultures' kidneys to shut down.
