Gay vultures in Amsterdam zoo hatch egg

Two male vultures in a long-standing relationship have become parents after successfully hatching an egg, says Artis Zoo in Amsterdam.

Staff gave the gay griffon vultures an abandoned egg, which they cared for in their nest for two months.

Zoo keeper Job van Tol said the two fathers are "a very tight couple" and are doing the job perfectly.

"We have had them for some years. They always build a nest together, bond and mate together," he told the BBC.
