I've seen them eat the afterbirth, never seen them kill anything. Their beaks are big, but not as powerful as a raptors beak. They prefer decayed or very soft meat, and will wait for decay to progress.

Old farmers have been know to tell old wives tales occasionally.

I’ll mention that to the old beef farmer up the road from who had his farm hands using the “SSS” technique after he lost so many calves.

[Or had to shoot the calves themselves after their “soft” eyes had been pecked out. Angus cows really aren’t especially vicious about watching over their babies]

Maybe things are more nasty in the mountains than the swamps.

Don’t doubt what I say, please.

I live here and see it.
