Vinny became an avian ambassador for MWR in June 2018. A young boy found a vulture’s nest and thought it would be fun to steal an egg and sneak it into his mother’s chicken incubator. Vinny hatched with the rest of the chickens! The family raised him for six weeks and over time realized they could not get him to leave! Vinny is a human imprint because he had no contact with other black vultures during his first few weeks. He will depend on humans to provide food and companionship for the rest of his life, making him unreleasable. Vinny adores the attention he receives from his handlers and has a forever home with MWR.
