   Pets beware, a large African vulture which escaped from a zoo is loose in England.

   The story as told by the BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/newsid_1402000/1402049.stm) has vulture facts and photos of the escapee.

   I made a mistake. SpencerTheLion posted the links to the story of Foster being captured. However, when I went to write my response I accidentally deleted his post. Sorry.
