Oya, vultures are Federally Protected birds. Nobody is permitted to do any harm to them, which is why the USDA was brought in to help with the issue. As such, there was no choice but to treat them humanely. This was all discussed previously in a few threads... You can ask that they be treated humanely all you want, we didn't have a choice!!! Nobody can harm a vulture except for the USDA under strict guidelines/conditions. Additionally, this was NOT an issue that was dealt with by the HOA, but one that was dealt with between a set of private residents and the USDA. The only involvement the HOA had was to allow access to a common area to the USDA for them to perform their work. I see no need for a community-wide Official Announcement for a non-HOA action, whose only result was the natural relocation of a large group of roosting vultures who impacted two streets in our community.
