Naturalists report sighting of elusive, rarely-seen Yodel driver
NATURE experts have reported a rare eyewitness sighting of a Yodel delivery driver.
Yodel drivers are thought to exist in scattered breeding colonies around the UK, but hide from mankind and prefer to just leave a card rather than knocking or ringing a bell.
Yodel-watcher Wayne Hayes said: “I’ve seen lots of Yodel cards on my doormat over the years, often telling me I was out when I was in. That’s the kind of quirky humour Yodel drivers enjoy.
“But like most of us, I had never seen a Yodel driver in that flesh. I always wondered what they looked like, whether they were human or some sort of large fox that can drive.”
Hayes saw the Yodel driver as it was lobbing a fragile parcel over a neighbour’s garden wall.
“It was about six feet tall and walking on its hind legs. Its movements were quite graceful and swift.
“I ran to get my camera but when I got back it had gone. But it’s a good feeling knowing I can tell my grandkids about the time I saw a Yodel driver and how magical it was.
“Apparently their diet includes cardboard, which is why sometimes their parcels arrive with bites taken out of them.”
