The black headed vultures hang out in groups and are nuisances for sheep, goat, and cattle ranchers. They are very aggressive and causing ranchers to look for ways to control them. Here is the US Fish & Wildlife Service form to fill out for anyone interested in doing it the legal way. http://www.fws.gov/forms/3-200-13.pdf

I had a flock of those black head vultures kill a newborn calf a couple years ago. They are more aggressive than the "buzzards". I go t me a donkey and put with the cows. There is not a vulture or a coyote that doesn't get chased off now. Darndest thing, that donkey is territorial...Maybe that's why my neighbors have feral hogs and I never see any. Never thought about that.

You can kill them but it has to be with the front end of your truck.

They also make a nice thump when they hit a Lexus at 80 mph.

My neighbor tried to hit one with his car and it flew up and busted his windshield.

Killed it dead as a hammer but he needed a new windshield.

What surprises me. Is hunters still having to ask this question. I have known that answer since the early 90's.
