The vultures are hungry.

Ornithologists in the French Pyrenees are scratching their heads over a situation worthy of Hitchcock as some 10,000 hungry vultures have reportedly switched from scavenging to hunting.

The protected birds are said to be killing sheep and even cows as their food supply has dwindled due to the incineration of carcasses rather than leaving them in trenches. Absent this supply, the vultures seem to be finding their own.

Ornithologists are skeptical of this new development, but a number of villagers have reported the frightening attacks.
