An injured baby bird left workers at an animal shelter shocked after pulling up outside in its own private Uber.
The two week-old baby Goldfinch was the only rider in the app-based cab when it pulled up at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah in Ogden, Utah on Saturday.
Center chairman Buz Marthaler told Live13 of his surprise at receiving a snap of the new arrival, saying: It was a picture of this bird, and it had come by Uber.
It was just crazy.
Workers later discovered that the Good Samaritans who ordered the Uber for the bird, now named Petey, had been drinking, and didnt want to drive it in themselves.
One of its saviors, Tim Crowley, said the bird fell from the sky as he was drinking with pals, and was totally unable to fly.
Crowley couldnt spot a nest that it might have come from.
He texted a photo of the creature to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, who recommended bringing the bird in.
The animal lover added: At first it was a joke, like, “Hey, maybe we should just call Uber!”
Then we were like, “No, really. Why not? Were paying them.”
