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.

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

They literally just said it looks domesticated.

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

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

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.

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.

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

That’s badass I like this comment a lot more than the nerds ruining my random animal encounter immersion

They were just making sure their future food is well prepared and taken care off. Keep gliding

The snark kinda backfired on you here, didn’t it dear?

I don't understand what OP is doing in the comments. They're all weird.

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.
