Hawk rescued by cab driver before Hurricane Harvey released into wild

Hawk rescued by cab driver before Hurricane Harvey released into wild”

According to the cab driver recording the video, she swooped into the cab and perched herself in the front seat.

Harvey the Hurricane Hawk is back in the skies over North Texas.

"Such a great moment to see Harvey the Hurricane Hawk introduced to her new home in the lovely Oak Point Park!" the City of Plano tweeted along with video of her release.

PLANO, Texas (AP) - An injured hawk that sought refuge in a Houston taxicab before Harvey made landfall last month has been returned to the wild.

Handlers who treated the hawk say she would not have survived the storm if she hadn't hopped in the cab.

"He just kinda hopped on in and doesn't want to leave", William Bruso, the cabdriver, said in a video he posted to YouTube on August 25.

The Houston-based animal care facility then took Harvey to the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center in Lucas for rehabilitation.

A spokesman for the Dallas suburb of Plano says she was released in a park there Wednesday.
