The war on illegal garbage dumps in Peru is being fought by government official and their pet vultures.

According to Reuters, authorities in Peru have launched the Vulture Detect program in a bid to eradicate illegal trash dumping.

A task force made up of 10 vultures equipped with GoPros and GPS are cracking down on residents who dispose of their trash in streets, rivers, and cliffs.

“They don’t realize that vultures play a very important role in nature, especially in Lima as they’re helping a lot to control a large quantity of the rubbish we’re dumping,” vulture trainer Alfredo Correa told Reuters.
The Global Post reports that about 840 metric tons of garbage are produced and disposed of illegally in the city every day.

Be warned litterbugs — your days are numbered.
