Vultures eye Wis. hospital patients –

GLENDALE, Wis., July 23 (UPI) — Patients at a Milwaukee-area hospital say the last thing they want to see while facing surgery are vultures perched outside their windows.

Yet, that’s the view from some patient’s rooms at the Orthopedic Hospital of Wisconsin in Glendale, Wis., the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday. It said patients about to go under the knife can watch up to six turkey vultures sitting on ledges of the three-story building.

I can see how that would be disconcerting…


  1. Hee hee.

    I mean, I can see how that would be disconcerting too, but it’s also kind of funny.

  2. Hehe. Then those hoofbeats they can hear in the distance are the 7 horsemen of the Apocalypse.

  3. As a medical student, I worked in a Camden hospital where the call rooms had a lovely view of the cemetery next door. And crucifixes on the walls (it was a Catholic hospital). A perfect place to contemplate the End Times.

  4. That can’t be good for the Prss Ganey scores.
