22008846 story Police Vulture Training Not a Success 65 Posted by samzenpus on Thursday June 30, 2011 @10:37PM from the didn't-have-the-stomach-for-it dept. rbrausse writes "Some time ago Slashdot covered the German police vulture training scheme; now it is time for a follow-up. BBC reports that the project has failed to take off. The trained vulture hasn't shown interest in working as a detective and confuses human with animal remains. Additionally the bird is shy and prefers to travel by foot."
