'Wind-up car-madillo' speeds off when being released into the wild

A Florida man released an armadillo into the wild, which took off at high speed, prompting him to dub it a "NASCAR armadillo".

The hilarious footage, filmed on April 30, in Cocoa, Florida, shows the moment James Greene held the tail of an armadillo and made some revving noises before letting it loose and seeing it sprint off into the wild.

“They’re a real nuisance here, but we released him back into the wild and he was unharmed,” Green told Newsflare.
