Although it looks bigger than its ‘normal’ colleague, I’m sure the bleached one is also a bontie. Albino bonties are a new one for me. What’s more, there were two: the second pic is a different animal. I hope there is no genetic modification going on, involving white mice ...

Description:

Dead steer by side of road but hidden from driver's view at base of a culvert, possibly died of natural causes but more likely a roadkill as cattle are in reasonable condition at present. Large congregation of vultures and others in close vicinity but unfortunately another vehicle did a U-turn and stopped right above the culvert to see what was so interesting and the feasting throng dispersed rapidly, after 15 to 20 minutes some of the vultures returned making cursory passes but did not alight.
