Video of Sky Burial Captures Vultures in Action

Good morning, Gorrriors! Got a really cool video here showing a sky burial in process. We know that Tibet and other countries practice the ritual known as sky burial, where a corpse is brought to a mountain top and left to nature to dispose of. As shown in the video, the participants in the recycling of the human body will likely fall to vultures. And look at them go! Really interesting video.

Thanks, @mrspink!

ON A SIDE NOTE: I apologize for the lack of content lately, things have been hectic around here and I’m gonna try to make it up to you guys.

  1. It’s considered a bad omen if the griffon vultures leave any flesh behind or refuse to eat at all. So if you are going to do a Buddhist jhator offering with your remains, be sure to get there early in the morning!

    Don’t sweat it, @obli! We all know you folks have lives. You are doing great work, no matter what anyone says!

    P.S. Can you resume Caption the Photo Contests, under another name perhaps?
