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 received a call last weekend from an impaired man who had found a baby lesser goldfinch struggling on the ground. About an hour later the bird arrived at the center by itself in an Uber as the man had called the car since he was too drunk to drive. The bird, now nicknamed “Petey” was thin and dehydrated on arrival but should be released into the Utah wilderness in a few weeks.
