BOCA RATON, FL ( — We are unaware of injuries to humans so far, but aggressive, scary vultures are the talk of the town west of 441 between Clint Moore and Palmetto Park Road.

Hoards of large vultures have been moving en masse, launching aerial assaults on unsuspecting small animals who have no place to hide. The angry birds are also hovering over and taunting people out for a jog or walk. They are congregating for hours at a time on area roofs.

Experts say nothing has changed with the migratory pattern of the vultures, but things are so bad in Everglades National Park that the park service is issuing tarps to motorists driving through — the vultures are reportedly attacking windshield wipers and the rubber that lines car windshields.
