I saw this first hand on Peavine Firetower road. They had a cow with a calf surrounded. The cow was trying to run them off but the calf was already dead. Don't know if the calf was dead beforehand or not

I don't ask govt' permission to protect my livestock. Make them fear man (or cattle) again. That's the only solution.

If the govt. wants to protect livestock killing scavengers, they can start reimbursing for losses due to the protected nuisances they create.

I almost hit 3 with my truck this fall. Came around a corner and they were in the middle of the road eating a road kill rabbit. I slow down going around this corner cause its a blind turn and I still had to hit the brakes to give them time to get off the ground.

Can't you get a permit to blast those things if they are destroying property or livestock?

Permits would have to come from the USFWS. I have been told that they likely will refer you to USDA Wildlife services at (615) 736-5506 to start.

Here's my question: are those black buzzards native, did they move in recently, what's the story?

Neither my wife nor I had ever seen them before moving into the Spring Hill area, and I'll tell you, we've never lived anyplace (MO, IL, VA, MI, or Chattanooga) that has buzzards in the sheer numbers that exist here in Williamson/Maury Counties. So is this relatively new?

There are turkey vultures and black vultures. The black vultures are the agressive ones although they only showed turkey vultures in that video.

you should see what my Shiloh Sharps .40-65 with a 421 grain boolet does to a buzzard

LOVE IT!!! Only Laugh I'd had today,
But my business partner doesn't hunt, loves his guns and his cattle
he has a serve problem in Montgomery County with them and coyotes.
Just like the news report, but you can go to his place any month of the year and they are hanging around the fence rows

My Family's farm has had many problems with thes buzzards. they lost 3 calfs in the past 2 years to them. He told me as far as the local farmers are concerned if they see them, their dead.

shoot em. we are not asking permission its costing us money.

As long as you realize it is a federal violation that could land you in federal court....
Is there not an exception for federally protected birds if they are causing property damage?
