WARNING: DISTURBING PICTURE OF DEAD ANIMAL I went off on a trail that was supposed to be just for the water department. There is a fence to the east side of the road where a sign says it is a conservation area and no trespass. I saw a big bird, a Black Vulture, and went to take a picture of it and it fled, then I saw what it was going to eat. Not sure what happened to this guy, did he get himself trapped in the fence?
