General Meanings:

Many people find vulture as an unpleasant animal, colloquially this word also used for greedy people. In Indian dream interpretations vultures are just the opposite interpreted as symbols for benevolent people who support own intentions.

Complete definition

Any of various large birds of prey of the New World family Cathartidae or of the Old World family Accipitridae, that are related to the hawks, eagles, and falcons but have weaker claws and the head usually naked. This helps to keep the head clean when feeding. Research has shown that the bare skin may play an important role in thermoregulation of this bird. A group of vultures is called a wake, committee, venue, kettle, or volt. The term kettle refers to vultures in flight, while committee, volt, and venue refer to vultures resting in trees.

    I dreamt that I was holding a dead vulture with its legs and talons tied, I was about using it as a sacrificial lamb in that dream. I tore it into pieces and somebody was looking at what is was doing to the animal without passing any comment! Kindly tell me what this means.
