Zombie Vultures ate my T-Top Part II

As I mentioned here, the big risk from vultures in the Everglades is that they love to strip out gaskets from cars.

Despite their evil ways, Len took this flattering portrait of one of the vultures:

The National Park Service has tried to deter the vultures by hanging a vulture corpse high above the parking lot. The vultures don't seem to learn from this example. If it would work to actually shoot some of them in the act, they will never know -- vultures are a protected species. The one depicted at left died a natural death, or so says the Park Service sign.
