Baby bird receives a special lift

July 10, 2019 06:07 AM

A Utah man had an interesting approach to saving an abandoned baby bird he found.    

Its very own Uber ride to a wildlife rescue. The staff was surprised when a tiny, dehydrated bird arrived at the Wildlife Rehab Center, unaccompanied.    


The bird, now known as Petey, was discovered by a man who said he had a few too many drinks that day.    

He called the wildlife center and was encouraged to bring the bird in. Since he was unable to drive, he called an Uber.    

Petey is now healthy and is expected to be at the center for another four to six weeks.
