ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Many of you know vultures as a sort of “cleanup crew,” eating any road kill in sight.

A new study, however, reveals that vultures and other birds of prey are disappearing at an alarming rate.

Roger Holloway, of the World Bird Sanctuary, talks about these birds and how they are being hunted for meat. Holloway will be hosting the seventh annual “Vulture Awareness Day” at the World Bird Sanctuary tomorrow, Sept. 5.

If you are looking for something to do with the kids this weekend, head over to the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park. Tomorrow’s events will begin at 10 A.M.
