Top 10 Animals Riding in Vehicles

My dog is a funny old sausage. He hates being in the car and will huff and whine the whole journey. But he always gets in the car quite happily because he knows it is walkies time. So do other animals like or dislike being in vehicles? It is time to find out as I bring you…

While it might look a little uncomfortable for the animal, in India cows are treated with the utmost respect and what you see here is a person from a small town taking a ox/cow home from the market to bring some prosperity to the village! Strange but true.

Poor David Palme here rescued this rather heavy 22-stone sheep from bad weather and despite asking local farms and sheep holders no-one said they were missing him, but by then the sheep had already made a home for its self. Only here in Wales could this happen.

When you are Jack Thullen you drive a taxi by night and raise injured owls by day, and that is who this is, I couldn’t find the name of the owl but it seems to not want to tip the driver.

I have done this myself when I went to get “Floppy” (my pet rabbit) I couldn’t resist letting him out of the box in the car and he was as good as gold. And my own Floppy is still going strong.

Despite looking cute, an Emu is one dangerous bird, but somehow local police in Devon managed to coax it into the rear of the police car but then couldn’t get in themselves until the owner was found. The owner was found and the bird safely returned home.

This might look a little cruel, but apparently camels will sit down almost flat quite happily making the job of transporting them from stables to tourist desert rides quite easy!

In Romania and other Baltic countries, you will, in fact, see this quite often as people with no money to buy a horse-box transport their much-loved animals to and from horse shows.

This is Felix and he has been trained to provide emotional therapy for the elderly and for handicapped children, contact with the pig stimulates curiosity, activity, and alertness.

Police officers in The USA were stunned to discover 6ft snapper nestling the rear window after pulling over a car for speeding! Better than a yappy lap dog in the back I suppose.

Seal travailing in a car

While being rescued in a storm this young seal pup decided he wasn’t going to be caught that easy and climbed out of the back of the rescue vehicle and somehow ended up on the dashboard! Needless to say, he was safely returned to the wild once the storm was over.

  1. I always wanted to have my own owl, I got to hold one for a brief moment once, it felt awesome on the arm. (It was just a small barn owl, but still cool!)

  2. Heehee, It’s great being able to crack an awful joke every now and then, or in this case ‘croc’ an awful joke. I’d better go to bed, its the silly time of the night!

  3. I love the croc the most. Imagine if it was in a taxi. Instead of a catchy taxi phone number, you could have ‘croc-o-dial’. The fare would probably cost an arm and a leg though!

  4. Tell me about it! Very strange indeed. But having researched it (like I normally do) it seems they make the camel lay down on it knees, wrap their back ends in carpet and then just pick them up and slide them (all snug as a bug, in the rug) into the car!

  5. Sadly yes, it is because it didn’t work with the theme I have chosen. But I appreciate you taking the time to read the post none the less!

  6. These definitely range from the cute to beyond bizarre! Love em all but especially #1. Although the faces on the camels in #5 did make me laugh (once I got over the shock of two camels in a small car. Still haven’t figured that one out! 🙂
