VIRAL VIDEO- The internet has gone crazy over a trending video showing a man paragliding with a black vulture. More than 15.2 million people have seen the short video. The black vulture can be seen quietly soaring with a paraglider at a height of thousands of feet in the footage.
In the video, one can see the black vulture calmly flying with a paraglider at a height of thousands of feet. Green forests and buildings are visible below. The bird is also seen adjusting its flight in the air by moving the rear part of its body (or the tail) up-down and right-left.
Seconds into the clip, the huge vulture is then seen landing on the paraglider’s feet, while the person starts caressing it.
At the end of the footage, the black vulture is seen biting into the glider’s shoes. The video has been shared by Twitter user Paul Nelson. The location has not been revealed.

In the comment section, one Twitter user informed that there is actually an activity that is called “Parahawking”, which involves paragliding with falconry. The birds are trained to ride with paragliders, the user said.
Other users were simply surprised to see the scene. “Magical. Peak life. Could not ever have a better experience,” wrote one user. “That is a once in a lifetime event. That is amazing,” said another.
A third user jokingly added, “Pretty sure that bird was assessing snackability right there. But WHAT a moment. Awesome.” “Don’t know how often that happens but how very cool to experience something like that. Of course, the altitude alone would be mind-blowing,” said fourth.
