Dracunculus and Dogs

And Turkey Vultures…

	A few years ago we had 3 or 4 Dracunculus in bloom at the same time. We noticed a Turkey Vulture circling overhead - lower and lower. Eventually one of them sort of crash landed near the clump, but took off right away. 

	We were pretty certain he was targeting the Dracunculus even from high in the sky.

Some time ago I mentioned something about the rotting meat smell of
dracunculus when in bloom and how odd it was that dogs totally ignored it.

Someone did offer an explanation but I cannot find it.

Anyone? An explanation / theory / suggestion - scientific or otherwise?

It's academic, in any case, as after years and years of dracunculus in
my garden it failed to show up this year.
