I thought vultures had cast-iron stomachs

A dead vulture (Gyps indicus indicus) lies outside the Panidihing Bird Sanctuary in the Sivasagar district of northeastern Assam, in far northeastern India.   At least 60 endangered vultures were found dead recently in the area after consuming a dead cow.   Vultures normally eat putrid carrion, with no ill effects.
