A Wayward Hawk Takes Refuge In a Houston Taxi Before the Incoming Hurricane Harvey Hits

William Brusco is a taxi driver in Houston, Texas. As hurricane Harvey approached, a young Cooper’s hawk flew into his car and decided it was a good place to stay. After all, there was both a weather event and a cat outside!

 

 

Animals are known for being particularly attuned to changes in weather and in the wake of the incoming Hurricane Harvey, a wayward, terrified hawk took refuge in William Bruso‘s taxi and refused to leave. Bruso, who obviously cares for animals, let the frightened bird commandeer his cab and gave him the name Harvey the Hurricane Hawk.

Brusco couldn’t shoo the hawk away (although he tried), and continued to record short video updates on his hawk adventure, as he took the bird home with him.

You have to wonder what Brusco’s last riders of the day thought as they got into a taxi with a wild hawk in it. Once home, Harvey made himself at home on a perch in front of Brusco’s liquor supply, enjoyed a meal of chicken parts and waited out the storm.
