Hundreds Of Vultures Take Over Trump Border Patrol Radio Tower


Good morning. I'm Noel King. A group of vultures is called a committee. That's not something U.S. Customs and Border Protection should need to know, but the agency is asking for help because a committee of 300 vultures is roosting in a radio tower in Kingsville, Texas. The bird droppings are a safety hazard. CBP needs a, quote, "vulture deterrence netting system." So if you can make a net to protect a 300-foot tower from vultures, please get in touch.
