    Drunk man sends injured baby bird to wildlife rescue center in Uber

    Posted: Tue 7:14 AM, Jul 09, 2019


    OGDEN (AP) A wildlife rescue in northern Utah is commending a man who found a creative way to rescue an abandoned baby bird while out drinking with friends.

    Staff at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah say they received a call last weekend from a man who “had a few too many” alcoholic drinks but discovered a baby lesser goldfinch struggling on the ground.

    About an hour later the bird arrived at the center by itself in an Uber. Staff later learned that the man had called the car as he was too intoxicated to drive.

    Center director Dalyn Marthaler says the bird who they nicknamed “Petey” was thin and dehydrated when he arrived. He says the bird should be released into the Utah wilderness in a few weeks.

    What I want to know is, did the bird sit in the front seat or the back seat? Cause I'm totally picturing him sitting in a little box in the back seat being chauffeured around.
