It has been suggested that outbreaks of BSE and Foot-and-Mouth disease resulted in a more controlled way of carcass disposal in livestock rearing regions in Spain, thus negatively impacting food availability for vultures. Carcass availability was tested in July 2001 in the province of Huesca. At eight carcass dumps which had been used in the recent past, four still contained fresh carcasses and had feeding Griffons, Egyptian Vultures Neophron percnopterus, Ravens Corvus corax and/or Red Kites Mivus milvus. Official carcass dumps were apparently not used anymore, but smaller dumps are still in use. Solitary carcasses can be found near herds of sheep and goats and in the vicinity of livestock-rearing farms. Food shortage is therefore probably not -yet- an issue.
