Watch This Anonymous Hero Saving A Bunny From Wildfire And Then Just Vanishing Into The Dark

As Ventura County suffers from the Thomas fire that has already forced about 200,000 people to evacuate, a man braved the flames to save one more local resident – a wild bunny. Luckily, a news photographer was nearby to record the heroic act, and the emotional footage he captured is spreading on the internet, giving hope to all Californians.

After seeing the frightened animal, the unidentified man pulled over on a highway near La Conchita. He wasn’t wearing a cape, just a pair of shorts and a hoodie. As the animal darted into the flames, he battled his emotions in the face of total destruction. In a last-ditch effort, the man went all-in and after a few moments and stumbles, the bunny was safely resting in his arms.

The man declined a request for an interview and decided to remain anonymous. Whoever he is, he has been instantly added to the hero list by people on social media, claiming he has successfully restored everyone’s faith in humanity.

His sense of urgency and concern for the rabbit is awe inspiring. Just when I thought most people are cold and bitter, I see this and it makes me feel like everything is going to be ok.

Wild jackrabbits are as quick as lightning, so this poor thing had to be either injured, in complete shock from terror, or both to let this man take and cuddle him to safety. The mans panicking when the rabbit starts heading into the fires just got me. I hope they are both well tonight.
