Police rescue lost, dehydrated vulture in Madrid

STORY: Video released by the police showed the bird in the doorway of a residential building in the trendy Malasana district.

One officer waved his hand to distract the bird's attention while another slowly inched closer from behind before expertly throwing a blanket over it. It was then bundled into a box before being taken to the Community of Madrid's Wild Animal Recovery Center (CRAS).

A worker at the centre told Reuters the bird was about a year old and slightly dehydrated.

The vulture will remain in the centre until it is fit to be returned to its natural habitat.
