HOUSTON, Texas - A Houston taxi driver picked up an unusual passenger Friday as Hurricane Harvey approached Texas.

KTRK-TV reports, William Bruso came back to his taxi after shopping for storm supplies, when he realized a Coopers hawk was sitting in the passenger seat of his car.

According to Bruso, the hawk was not injured in any way, but refused to leave the car.

Bruso speculated the hawk was looking for a place to, "hunker down" during the storm, so he named him, "Harvey the Hurricane Hawk."
Bruso has been giving updates on the hawk's situation and plans to contact an animal professional once the hurricane passes. For now, though, Harvey the Hurricane Hawk is riding out the storm with Bruso and his family.
