These vultures have been accused of taking livestock. Now they've taken a human body. The article claims she was definitively dead before the feast began, though it doesn't say how this was established. 

Vultures eat the remains of 52-year-old woman who fell to her death in France - Europe - World - The Independent: "“When we first went out in the helicopter looking for the body, we saw numerous vultures without realising what they were doing.

“There were only bones, clothes and shoes left on the ground. They took 45 to 50 minutes to eat the body.”

  1. A 300-meter fall...I think we can safely assume instant death if it was a straight plunge. A slide down, maybe, would leave someone still alive and dying at the bottom, but I have to say I rather buy that the unfortunate woman was dead to begin with.
