Open Post: Hosted By The Barfing And Shitting Vultures Who Are Ruining A Couple’s Florida Vacation Home
A New York couple’s dream vacation home is being destroyed by vomiting and shitting vultures who refuse to leave. Basically these vultures are the Michael Lohan of wildlife and it’s costing this couple their second home. I mean, Florida has been generous with its reasons to not build a dream home there but vomiting, butt-spewing vultures are definitely sending a clear message.
According to HuffPo:
A New York couple’s luxurious vacation house in Florida has been taken over by dozens of black vultures that are vomiting and defecating everywhere.
The Palm Beach Post reports the Casimano family can’t even visit the $702,000 home they purchased earlier this year in the Ibis Golf and Country Club.
Siobhan Casimano described the smell as “like a thousand rotting corpses.” The vultures have destroyed screen enclosures, and have overtaken the pool and barbeque. The few times the family has visited, they’ve had to park their car in the garage or the birds peck at them with their beaks.
This is like the Birds and The Money Pit teaming up to make the ultimate vacation home horror movie. Florida has had its problems with wildlife, from horny alligators to monkeys having sex on people’s heads, but this is the stuff of nightmares.
A neighbor, Cheryl Katz, tells the Post she’s got it even worse because she lives next door to a person who is feeding the vultures and other wildlife. In May, she said vultures tore through her pool enclosure and couldn’t figure out how to get out.
“Imagine 20 vultures trapped, biting each other — and they can bite through bones,” she said. “They would bang against my windows running away from a bird that was attacking them. Blood was everywhere. It was a vile, vicious, traumatic event. And it was Memorial Day, so no company I called would come out to help me.”
Here’s video of those squatting vultures, who should really be told the way to Mar-a-Lago:

It turns out there isn’t an easy solution as the vultures are protected wildlife and they have a neighbor who has taken a page from the Bitter Neighbor book and is excessively feeding the animals.
The homeowners blame Katz’ neighbor, who they claim is excessively feeding wildlife.
Katz said she has seen the neighbor give bags of dog foot and even a roasted chicken to the vultures.
Neighborhood association president Gordon Holness said they’ve warned the woman but they’re limited in what they can do because the vultures, as migratory birds, are protected by federal law.
Who ever is in charge of Florida, and I’m assuming it’s Crystal Metheney, needs to help this family out. They didn’t spend $700,000 on a Florida vacation home only to have vultures ruin their lives and their money! If they wanted that, they would have bought a house near Tom Cruise’s or the Scientology headquaters.
