May 6, 2013

A 52-year-old woman hiking in France was devoured by vultures after tripping and falling down a 300m cliffside. It happened in front of her shocked friends on Pic de la Pista, in southern France, gendarmerie Major Didier Pericou told The Times of London.

“There were only bones, clothes and shoes left,” after the vultures got to her, Pericou said. “They took 45 to 50 minutes to eat the body. It is established that she died in the fall,” he said. “When we first went out in the helicopter looking for the body, we saw numerous vultures without realising what they were doing.”

The incident has sparked a campaign against the birds, known as Griffon vultures. French farmers complain of the vultures attacking livestock since new regulations have forced breeders to burn the bodies of dead animals, depriving the Griffon population of their normal diet. UPI
