BBC - global vulture alert

I've been reading about this story for years. At first it was a mystery. Now we know what is happening: Study sounds global vulture alert

A widely used livestock pain killer could endanger the survival of vultures around the world, researchers suggest.

The rapid decline of Indian vulture populations has been blamed on the use of the drug diclofenac to treat inflammation in cattle.
This one seems so fixable. The damned cows don't even need the meds. We just have to stop administering it. One nation at a time if necessary.
