10k fine here in SC. A client of mine poisoned some coyotes on his farm that damaged cattle and the buzzards ate the carcusses before his farm hand could clean them up and 10 died. He called the warden and explained before he got fined. He was sweating bullets for a little while.
While pretty disgusting birds, they serve a vital purpose - cleaning up the shite that you and I don't want to clean up. While I can see why you may want to shoot them, I would never want to - and I can't afford the fines.
