Vultures taking over Mayo Street in Americus

Posted: Updated:

People on Mayo Street say the big birds come out early in the morning and late at night sitting on rooftops and cars. Even coming right up to the front doors of homes.

They admit they've always had some buzzards but the problem has gotten worse over the last 6 months.

"I lived here all my life and I never seen this many. Used to be 5 or 6 now it's like eating something dead on the road, now it's a couple hundred. And cars tries to drive through them, they won't even move," said James Mann.

City leaders asked a DNR bird specialist to meet with residents about how to control the problem.

That meeting will be at 9 a-m June 30th at the Americus Visitor's Center.
