Turkey vultures were blamed for almost $10,000 worth of damage to the roof of a city school.
Officials said the vultures gathered on the roof of Hopewell Elementary and pecked on the rubber covering of the roof. At one time, there was 60 carrion-eatintg birds on the roof.
The birds are federally protected, which makes getting rid of them complicated.
