Vinton Trying Ways to Keep Vultures Away

Vinton, VA - Officials in Vinton are looking for ways to discourage vultures from paying the town a visit during their annual migration.

This year, nearly 100 vultures landed in the Gladetown area where police officers fired booming guns into the air to drive the birds away.

The Town Manager says more efficient methods are being considered for the vultures' return next year.

He says vultures are loud and dirty, and they tear up the trees.
