The turkey vulture’s natural defense mechanism, vomiting, is certainly unique. The appropriately named Barf is a human imprint from St. Louis, MO. He was rescued by the World Bird Sanctuary, who were notified of a turkey vulture that kept following people around begging for food. Since imprinting is irreversible, he will remain with us as an example of the need for proper wildlife rehabilitation training.
