"MADRID (AP) - Spanish vultures are hungry, even starving...European Union laws aimed at halting the spread of Mad Cow disease require the countryside to be kept clear of dead livestock even if they died of natural causes.But Juan Carlos Atienza of the Spanish Ornithological Organization says the lack of animal corpses since the law was introduced in Spain in 2002 has hit certain vultures very hard...Atienza says the EU is studying a change that would allow some regions to leave carrion out."

 Boy, our world is weird!

Carrion eaters need carrion. And our actions can cause difficulties with other species without even *trying*. It's not only a weird world, but its a hideously complex one. :)

I am bemused, yet charmed, that they are trying to help the vultures.
