A vulture from Diergaarde Blijdorp has been flying around a Rotterdam residential area since this morning. The bird of prey was spotted when it sat on the roof of an apartment building on Ameidestraat.
The vulture is now flying from flat to flat, reports Rijnmond. A spokesperson for the zoo has been informed and has said that the bird is being monitored. She expects the animal to come back on its own when it gets hungry.
The beast is allowed to fly freely from time to time to stretch its wings now that the bird shows in which it normally flies do not take place. “It happens more often that he flies around in our garden. Yesterday he took off for a walk.”
The bird is harmless, the spokesman said. She does recommend that you do not chase the animal and leave it alone.
