Vultures Equipped With GoPro Cameras Help Bust Illegal Garbage Dumpers in Peru

People in Peru are getting busted for illegal garbage dumping... by vultures.

It's part of a program called "Vultures Detect." The vultures are wearing special vests, outfitted with GoPro cameras and GPS systems to record images of any illicit garbage dumps.

The birds are fit for the task because they already look for organic matter and garbage during their searches for food.

The 10 vultures are trained to return to their keepers.
