A Houston man found a surprising fare waiting in his cab while preparing for Hurricane Harvey.
William Bruso stepped out to get food and came back to find a terrified-looking Cooper’s hawk sitting in his passenger’s seat and filmed the encounter.

“This Cooper’s hawk, a really pretty fella, has sought refuge in my cab here,” Bruso can be heard saying in the video, posted to YouTube Friday. “He seems to be scared, he doesn’t know what’s going on.”
Bruso told IBTimes UK that he tried to release the bird, but when he refused, Bruso let the hawk stay until the storm passed.
