pet rabbit saves owner

We have heard stories of heroic dogs who saved their master's life. We have even heard, perhaps, stories of a cat, pig or horse that has done something similar.

But a rabbit?

This week, a couple in Melbourne, Austrialia was awoken by the sound of their pet rabbit scratching at their bedroom door. The man, thinking it was peculiar that his pet rabbit was scratching at the door, got up to investigate.

When he did, he found that his house was on fire. They called the fire department and escaped without harm.

The fire eventually caused "substantial" damage to the house. The local fire commander, Mick Swift, credits the rabbit with saving the couple from injury.
