Last weekend, a bird showed up at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah (WRCNU) in the most unusual, and until now unheard of, way -- in an Uber... completely alone. 

Apparently, the people who found the injured bird, a two-week-old Lesser Goldfinch, had been drinking and didn't want to drive. They sent an image of the bird to the WRCNU asking whether or not the center would be able to help the bird out, the center told them to bring it in. 

Unable to drive, they came up to the conclusion that they should call an Uber for the bird.

"At first it was a joke, like, 'Hey, maybe we should just call Uber!' said Tim Crowley, one of the people who rescued the baby Goldfinch. "Then we were like, 'No, really. Why not? We're paying them.'"

They called an Uber and after explaining their unique situation to the driver, the driver canceled on them. So they decided to try again, called up a second Uber, and this time they only told the driver the situation after she pulled up. 

"Like, 'What? Are you kidding? Okay, sure,'" Tim said was the driver's reaction.

But thanks to Crowley and the others who came up with this plan, the saved that little birds life. According to Buz Marthaler, the center's chairman, the bird would have died had it not gotten help or been able to be put back into its nest. 

Thankfully, Petey — as Crowley and his other rescuers called the bird — is doing well. Marthaler told FOX13 that the bird even have a friend sharing its cage! The center is still unsure if the bird is a boy or girl yet and have decided to call the bird, "Uber" or "Petey Uber." Marthaler also confirmed that the center will be able to release Petey by the end of summer, just before the migration.

"It just brightens everybody's day," Marthaler said. "Makes them pretty happy."

Scientists Are Speechless At This Arctic Fox Walking 76 Days From Norway to Canada

The female fox trekked the two and a half month journey from Norway's Svalbard islands to northern Canada in the longest recorded fastest movement rate for a fox ever. Researchers at Norway's Polar Institute fitted the young female with a GPS tracking device and freed her into the wild in late March last year on the east coast of Spitsbergen, the Svalbard archipelago's main island. The fox was under a year old when she set off west in search of food, reaching Greenland just 21 days later - a journey of 1,512 km - before trudging forward on the second leg of her trek.
She was tracked to Canada's Ellesmere Island, nearly 2,000 km further, just 76 days after leaving Svalbard. What amazed the researchers was not so much the length of the journey as the speed with which the fox had covered it - averaging just over 46 km (28.5 miles) a day and sometimes reaching 155 km.

No Elephants Have Been Killed By Poachers In Africa's Top Wildlife Park For Over A Year

This is an extraordinary triumph! One of the largest wildlife parks in Africa, Niassa Reserve, is marking a complete year without finding a single elephant found killed by poachers. The last time an elephant killed by poachers at the Niassa Reserve was May 17, 2018. This incredible turnaround is largely due to the more assertive police force, patrolling, and response by air, according to New-York-based Wildlife Conservation Society. 

A year ago, James Bampton, county director with the Wildlife Conservation Society, estimated that there were less than 2,000 elephants remaining in Niassa, and now with a preliminary analysis of date from a survey in October, Mr. Bampton indicates there are about 4,000 elephants in the reserve! 

Mr. Bampton told ABC News that the elephants in the reverse "stand a genuine chance for recovery."

See some images of the gentle giants below!

Wildlife Photographer Photographs A Mouse Rescued From A Cat's Mouth (17 Beautiful Pics)

Meet Hannah Assil, wildlife photographer extraordinaire! As a biologists daughter, her path was clear, she was a bird and wildlife addict from the very start. And while her main focus is on birds, she couldn't help taking some pics of little Fridolin! Hannah gave a little insight to Fridolin's back story, "Fridolin didn't have the start a little mouse could wish for. Before he was even able to open his eyes, he and his mother found themselves in the mouth of a cat." And unfortunately, the mom didn't survive, but as luck would have it, little Fridolin was dropped by the cat and scooped up by a kid who witnessed the act. Thanks to that small act of kindness, Hannah Assil continues, "Fridolin grew fast and made the best of his second chance at life."

"I want people to focus on the beauty of our world in all of its aspects. Especially in times like these, where nature gets destroyed and extinctions of biological species happens, it's important to evoke the passion for nature in the hearts of humans," she told ICanHasCheezburger and some good solid advice, "Be like Fridolin: Enjoy the little things in life and take some time to smell the flowers."

If you're interested in learning more about Hannah Assil or want to purchase any prints, all info can be found on her website (it is in German but that's what 'Google Translate' is for)! Or follow her on Instagram and/or Facebook.

Thank you, Hannah, for sharing your art with the world! Hannah was able to take photos of little Fridolin twice, and the results were pure magic. See the beautiful photos below:
