You often read about a dog or a cat saving an owner's life, but you almost never read about a heroic rabbit. That is until now.

The rabbit rescue went down in Ketchikan, Alaska where an early morning fire broke out in a residence. The rabbit was apparently aware of the fire, jumped on the homeowner's bed and began scratching the woman's chest until she woke up.


Realizing there was a fire, the homeowner and her daughter escaped safely. Sadly, the rabbit did not. It succumbed to smoke inhalation. [Reuters; Image from Stefan Petru Andronache/Shutterstock]
