Heroic California Man Pulls Over to Rescue a Wild Rabbit Trapped by the Flames of the Thomas Fire

Man Rescues Rabbit from Thomas Fire

An unknown man who was driving on Highway One in Ventura County, California, pulled his car over to the side of the road and seemingly began to behave rather strangely. What this heroic young man was doing, however, was making a brave attempt to catch a wild rabbit who had become trapped by the flames of the devastating Thomas Fire. Luckily, the man was able to get a bead on the rabbit’s movements and quickly caught the scurrying animal. He gently scooped up the frightened lagomorph and walked safely away from the flames.
