Hi Tweeters,On the lot next to mine here in Malaga outside of Wenatchee there are a couple of cottonwoods where the vultures roost.  Sadly, a raccoon had been struck by a car and perished on the road where I walk the dogs so instead of watching it gradually disappear every day I moved the raccoon to within about 50 yards of the roost where it was visible on their flight path going and coming from the roost.  On days one through 3 there was no activity on the raccoon at all and I was wondering if I should have just thrown it in the lake for the turtles.  However, I was out of town on day 4 and 5 and this morning when I checked the raccoon had been moved about 10 feet and was just skin and bone so I think the birds did feast while I was gone.  I had wondered why more road side animals aren't devoured by them but perhaps it's due to road traffic.   Anyway, enjoy your lunch!Best,John D'AntoniMalaga, WA
