In the wild Andean Condors get a steady supply of food from dying domestic cattle. The areas they occupy are so wild that farmers only gather their herds once a year and are not around to assist if an animal becomes sick. Neither are they there to bury dead cattle. In captivity birds are primarily fed a specially-developed 'Bird of Prey' food.
