Gay Vulture Dads

A dutch zoo introduces two new parents: Gay vultures become parents in Amsterdam zoo.

A Dutch zoo says two male vultures in a long-standing relationship have become parents after successfully hatching an egg. […] when staff discovered a lone egg that none of the other vultures would adopt, they first cared for it in an incubator, and then decided to place in the male couple's nest. "It was a bit of risk as we had no guarantees of success, but we thought, finally, this is their chance," said Mr Van Tol.

Artis Amsterdam Royal Zoo said the new parents are very protective of their fast-growing chick, which is now 20 days old, and they have been breaking up its food to make it manageable to eat.
