A news photographer captured a driver saving a wild rabbit from the California wildfires. The man pulled over and tried to scoop up the rabbit only to see it hop away from him towards large flames. He then began panicking, jumping up and down, fearing the animal would die. Seconds later, the rabbit reappeared trying to get away from the wildfire. The man then gently picked the animal up and held it in his arms to try to calm it down
A cameraman from local station KABC caught the moment, but the hero declined to be identified. Later, kill-joy wildlife experts said that the man would have done better to leave the rabbit alone, since wild animals are skilled at evading fire. Nobody asked the bunny for comment.
