I personally have never seen a vulture in real life, and only read stories about this amazing creature, just recently we happened to come across an injured Vulture around the Karachi Golf Club area. The local caddy population was wanting to make money from the sale of this bird, my father (Dr. Arif Alvi) stepped in and brought the animal home to revive this animal and hand it over to the WWF preservation society. The WWF claims that there are
6-7 remaining vultures upwards of 1000 vutures in Pakistan. How this animal came to Karachi, we shall never know.
We have fed the vulture and it feels quite healthy as you can see in these pictures, he was basking his wings in the Karachi winter sun. Massive wing span of upwards of 6 feet and probably 3 feet tall. We are scheduled to release this wonderful beast to the WWF in a day or so.
