We’ve all heard of firefighters rescuing a cat stuck in a tree, but what about the one where they pull a bunny down from the roof?
If you haven’t heard this take of the common story, you’re about to. Firefighters in Northern Ireland saved an adorable bunny named Bumper on Friday when the wind from Storm Gertrude threw the bunny’s living quarters into the air, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
“The wind caught the hutch and sent it flying into the air and it has catapulted the rabbit out of the hutch and onto the roof,” said Omagh Fire Station district commander David Doherty.
Fortunately, Bumper (who has since been renamed Gertrude) was out of the hutch while it was still flying threw the air. The lucky bunny landed on the roof relatively unharmed, but was still stranded there until the storm subsided and the fire department came to rescue her.
Since then, she’s been reunited with her family and is once again happy and safe. While we don’t know the circumstances surrounding our furry friends home, this seems like a good time to remind all my fellow bunny lovers that our carrot-loving friends are safer kept indoors.
If you enjoyed the drama of this sweet story, please SHARE with family and friends to remind them to always bring animals inside when storms approach.
