Lurch the Vulture at Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary

Lurch was found with a wing injury and taken to Ironside Bird Rescue, Cody, WY. After surgery to attempt repair, he was still unable to fully extend his wing, deemed non-releasable, and brought to YWS. Lurch and his fellow turkey vulture Uncle Fester share an enclosure and generally get along. Because the two look so much alike, our animal care staff use their eye colors, which are distinct and can be used for identification.
