Not many details, but I thought this was interesting

German police are training vultures to find human remains. Quote: "The first bird, Sherlock, is currently being trained to love the putrid smell of dead human flesh."

Possibly also useful for hunting down stray zombies.


  1. How much training do they need? Don't they love the smell of dead flesh already?

  2. I think probably their "training" is conditioning them to prefer human flesh over other things, so they don't get distracted by other dead animals all the time. Like I said: not many details.
