I saw this somewhere already, the vulture is his own and they fly together regularly.


bleunt t1_j3bnv59 wrote

Yeah OP is a bit silly for thinking this happened randomly. Or OP just thought lying would offer more karma.


Biased_individual t1_j3bo1ob wrote

Who would do that? Going on the internet and spread lies? Jesus.

I don't think Jesus ever did that.

The funny thing is that the video would be as awesome if he told the truth. But he had to lie somehow.

OP's account is Karma farming just look how many posts he's made in the past couple of days.


ScumEater t1_j3c9pnf wrote

A post with no follow up comment from op always strikes me as karma farming. Then again I don't make posts.


taleofbenji t1_j3byenm wrote

I refuse to believe that someone would lie on Reddit.


pizzahutbuffet t1_j3ev7ua wrote

Here we are again, I really liked the thought of the vulture somehow deciding to just do this, I just thought it was cool, everything on the internet is fake. Yeah I’m silly, whatever, life’s more fun when you entertain silly possibilities like this


NhylX t1_j3bzrn1 wrote

He didn't really lie. A decision was made. The vulture could have flipped the bird and peaced out.


Chris_Jartha t1_j3bzvcq wrote

I was going to say… I’d hope so. I’d never touch a wild vulture, even if I could. The amount of parasites and bacteria they collect is ridiculous lol

Dear_Ambellina03 t1_j3brzc3 wrote

This isn't true. While they do feed on carrion, they are as clean as any other bird. They have amazing gut bacteria that allows them to eat what they do, but they are not dirty.


Trismesjistus t1_j3c0asf wrote

> they are as clean as any other bird

That's not a very high bar to clear though. Birds are pretty dirty animals


Dear_Ambellina03 t1_j3cmzmn wrote

Right, no wild animals are "clean" but vultures aren't abnormally dirty.


beer_demon t1_j3bgwar wrote

While this does look like a domesticated vulture, when paragliding I did have vultures try to land on the top of the wing, and once managed it and then slid off, they are not afraid of paragliders at all.


Camarao_du_mont t1_j3bkf2o wrote

Pretty sure wild vultures don't have leather straps on their feet.


wad11656 t1_j3dxlgb wrote

They literally just said it looks domesticated.


jawshoeaw t1_j3dfny7 wrote

You clearly don’t know Clarence my pet vulture. Wild is his middle name!


OrionJohnson t1_j3d7og4 wrote

Or their wings clipped so they can’t fly on their own, only glide


cnthelogos t1_j3e5bgf wrote

Yes, if I had a pet vulture and clipped its wings, I would definitely take it paragliding with me. /s

Christ Redditors are so eager to see animal abuse. I legitimately believe it's an illness.


Camarao_du_mont t1_j3ec9pr wrote

That's not even how clipped wings work.

It's very noticeable when done, and it's only done to one of the wings. You can clip almost all flight feathers an the bird will still fly.

The goal is to have asymmetric wings so they cannot gain height but can still glide down to safely.

And you don't clip wings, you clip feathers.


brucebrowde t1_j3d4oh4 wrote

Do you think wild vultures would be so unafraid to allow to be petted though?

I'm gonna guess it's a bot that's still working through its response algorithm (6 year old account, once post 6 years ago and a bunch of rando posts over the past two days).

From the looks of their post history they’re just a farming account. But I’ve not usually seen bot accounts be so…. odd.

taffaq t1_j3bq6g2 wrote

Being a bird is so fucking cool


AfellowchuckerEhh t1_j3d6bt8 wrote

Looks so freeing to just casually be gliding through the air like this. Unless there's a bigger bird trying to eat you. Always wondered if birds have a fear/anxiety of heights since it still could kill them if they injure a wing or what not. Or if just chilling on the ledge of a skyscraper is just w/e to them because they can just fly if they slip.


brucebrowde t1_j3d4qew wrote

I'm not scared of falling, I'm just scared of the sudden deceleration at the end.


jsha11 t1_j3buhu3 wrote

So gravity isn’t the force to be feared, but electromagnetism is


Secret_Autodidact t1_j3c5idp wrote

Gravity gets a bad rap, it's making you accelerate just the same on the ground as it is when you're falling through the air. It's the damn ground that's the problem, without it we'd be weightless!


Rossrox t1_j3box9p wrote

Same! I describe it as a fear of unsafe heights - if there’s something that I could do either accidentally or on purpose that could put me in serious danger, I don’t like it.


schruted_it_ t1_j3buwcw wrote

OhMyGoth1 t1_j3bxmo9 wrote

Good thing it's not actually a wild vulture. They have very sharp beaks and can be pretty bitey


jawshoeaw t1_j3dgadj wrote

What about talons


OhMyGoth1 t1_j3djfb5 wrote

Not actually as dangerous. They're sharp enough but vultures have relatively weak feet (at least compared to raptors, which is part of the reason they aren't classified with them anymore). No need to grip and kill your prey with talons when it's already dead

Sure, he was "resting his wings" on something that could have been a predator and might have wanted to kill it. Wild animals do this kind of thing all the time.

That’s a nice looking vulture. I saw a turkey vulture up close and it’s face looked like it stuck it n a fire. Looked all bloody and burn-victimed. I looked it up and they’re all that ugly.


Teantis t1_j3bvar2 wrote

They don't have feathers on their heads so their heads stay cleaner when eating.


PraiseBobSlackOff t1_j3bvmpp wrote

I think I knew that. The turkey vulture has a red head. Looks weird. Huge wing span. They would hang around the lake with the jogging path looking for carrion. Majestic flight.


Teantis t1_j3bvz46 wrote

Yeah think quite a few birds have red skin under their feathers. Quite a few actual turkeys do and chickens

That is a species of vulture. Not all of them have a bald head and neck. Some, like this one, just have a bald face. You can see it when it's nibbling his right shoe. Hawks and falcons also have generally short and very curved beaks, while this one has a longer and flatter beak

Fair enough…I’m just more than a bit over the apparent ‘necessity’ to add music/songs to clips that almost always don’t need it. Think it’s the TikTok generation and their apparent super short attention span and intolerance/fear of silence! Maybe I’m just old…😂

Repost. Knowing that the guy and the vulture have a relationship helps but it makes me so frustrated when he pets it.
