German gay groups are protesting after a zoo split a pair of gay male vultures, who had been together since March.

The gay griffon vultures named Guido and Detlef have been residing in Münster's Allwetterzoo since March of this year and have continued to show onlookers them grooming one another and rearranging the sticks that made up their nest"

Zoo worker Dirk Wewers reportedly said: “They always sat so closely together. They defended their nest from the other vultures. A suitable female was missing and in such a case vultures look for companionship from the next best thing, even if it is a male.

Detlef looked for a bird of the opposite sex but settled with Guido.”

Both have been sent to different zoo's in the Czech Republic where they are reportedly showing little interest in the opposite sex.
