The recent deaths of nine vultures in the Torremiro park near Morella is at the centre of a storm of controversy. Members of the ‘Eolicas-No’ collective stated that the birds were “sliced to death” by the blades of the giant wind collectors that can reach speeds of up to 290km an hour.
However, a representative from the Renomar company that runs the installations, stated that the reason the birds died was that they had consumed the carcasses of other animals that had been dead for a considerable time.
The bodies of the dead birds have now been removed for forensic examination, and the regional Territory ministry has now taken over the investigation.
