Vultures Gutting a Car

On the roof of a salvage company building in Cortez there is an upside-down car with it's "innards" being ripped out by vultures. Other vultures are perched nearby. I was unable to persuade my traveling companion to stop and take a photo.

April 2016: Photo added. The vultures appear to be made of metal, probably salvaged.
