Empathy perhaps…

Inside this cage at the wildlife rescue center, Flamingo Gardens, in southern Florida are Black Vultures (Coragyps atratus). But look! On the top of the wire cage sit uncaged, free Black Vultures. Flamingo Gardens’ goals are to release recovered wildlife back into the wilds as able. However some are too injured or too imprinted with humans and will never be able to survive in the wild. These will have a forever home at Flamingo Gardens. My mind wonders if the apparent empathy from the uncaged Vultures will aid in the recovery and survival of the rescued Vultures.
