Death And Disembowellment- And All Before The Watershed [Mar. 17th, 2019|04:25 pm]
Tony Grist
My mother is watching a TV programme about vultures. There's an awful lot of that sort of thing on TV these days, especially in the afternoons. I can see the attraction of shows about cute animals, but why do we like watching shows about animals eating one another?

I caught a bit of the action when I was taking my mother her cup of tea. A lion had brought down a herbivore and was tearing it to bits- while the vultures looked on. Whoops, there goes what looks like the stomach! In any other context this sort of imagery would have people writing in to complain (and the Mail would be relishing their "fury") but since it's a wildlife programme it's totally fine, apparently...

It takes all kinds, I suppose. I never would have thought it myself, but during that trip I took years ago to the Masai Mara, I was actually charmed by vultures (more so than Marabou storks, which are really creepy) and ended up spending quite a lot of time around them. Very sociable birds really and fascinating to watch in their "leisure" time.

I should imagine they're fairly intelligent.
