Wild vulture rescued after wandering the streets of Madrid
Spanish police on Wednesday rescued a disoriented and dehydrated wild vulture as it wandered the streets of downtown Madrid, holding up traffic and startling passers-by.
While one police officer distracted the bird, another captured it from behind using a blanket. They put the vulture into a cardboard box and took it to a local animal recovery centre that specializes in raptors.
"It's a young vulture, about one-year-old, and it was a bit dehydrated," a worker at the Brinzal recovery centre told Reuters.
