The Vulture from the Norfolk Zoo got loose and no one could bring him home.
That comes as no surprise, after all, this raptor's wing span is eight feet wide, and the Vulture can fly higher than any bird in its family. This bird was anything but flighty...Falconers tried everything from food traps to a noose, but to no avail. (------------) Finally the vulture was caught and he is now making his way home with Zoo Keepers.
