Birds from all over the state of Virginia are suffering from lead poisoning. Every year, the Virginia Wildlife Center receives 15 to 25 birds with symptoms of lead poisoning, including bald eagles and vultures.
On Wednesday, the Wildlife Center received a turkey vulture that was hit by a car. Upon further testing, it was discovered that the bird had lead in its blood system. The Center believes the vulture scavenged upon the remains of a deer that was killed during the illegal hunting season.
