Jean-Pierre Pommiès, see yesterday's post, inspects the damage done to a Blonde d'Aquitaine calf by a group of 40 vultures.
"Neigbours warned me of a large flock of vultures cirkeling over my land, but by the time I arrived, the calf was dead and the mother cow running around crazy." Jean-Pierre Pommiès is adamant: "The calf was viable at birth. The mother cleaned the placenta, licked her calf, proof that he was alive. When we arrived, it was still warm".
It is the old story of farmers and hunters on one side, the conversationalists on the other....
