Hurricane Harvey: Hawk Takes Shelter in a Taxi [VIDEO]

BrysquickhitsWe cull the internet in search of the latest outdoors-related tidbits, YouTube clips, photos, memes, you name it. Stuff you HAVEN’T seen before, hopefully. If it’s amusing, entertaining, educational or astonishing, you’ll find it here. Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and see what’s new.

Despite the untold devastation, Hurricane Harvey is bringing out the kindness in everyday people.

For an example, look no further than William Bruso, a cab driver from Houston, Texas. William stopped to get supplies in advance of Hurricane Harvey when a Cooper’s hawk swooped into his taxi and refused to leave.

Here’s the video that started it all:



With time running out before making contact with Hurricane Harvey, William took the hawk back to his place.

Again, the hawk refused to leave. So William had no choice. He had to take the hawk in and weather the storm.

He named the hawk Harvey and fed him chicken hearts while waiting for the storm to subside. There are some very entertaining videos of Harvey’s time at William’s home on William’s YouTube channel.

I encourage you to watch all of them.

To make a long story short, William took Harvey to the TWRC Wildlife Center. Upon examination, it turned out Harvey had an injury that prevented flight. The bird will be nurtured back to health and released when ready.

Harvey would almost certainly have died if not for the kindness of a cool cabbie. Great job, William.
