Super-Bunny to the Rescue

Posted By on Mon, Sep 19, 2011 at 1:30 PM

I've never really been an animal person, you won't find me posting cutesy photos of puppies or cats that do funny tricks... but this is just impressive.

A rabbit saved it's owners from a fire. Yes, really, a rabbit.

A southeastern Alaskan woman claims that the rabbit woke her up by scratching her chest. Once she realized the house was full of smoke she and her daughter fled the building. Unfortunately, the bunny-hero was not as lucky.

She rushed to get her daughter out of the home, but the rabbit was left behind in the confusion.

Ketchikan Fire Capt. Tracy Mettler tells the Ketchikan Daily News [that] pets often find their own way out of a burning building but not this time.

But like I said... I'm not much of an animal person anyway. I'm glad the humans are safe.
