Himalayan vultures near the carrion of a cow that they ate (India)

They were near the carcass of a dead cow that had pretty-much cleaned to the bones.­

They only left the head and legs (not soft and meaty enough to their tastes, I guess).­

Himalayan vultures can reportedly strip a cow carcass of all meat in roughly 120 minutes!
