Vúlture. n.s. [vultur, Lat.] A large bird of prey remarkable for voracity.
Nor the night raven, that still deadly yells,
Nor griesly vultures make us once affear'd. Spenser.
We've willing dames enough, there cannot be
That vulture in you to devour so many,
As will to greatness dedicate themselves. Shakesp.
A rav'nous vulture in his open'd side,
Her crooked beak and cruel talons try'd. Dryden.
