While everyone knows the old trope about cats getting stuck in trees, it’s not as often that you ear about a rabbit stuck on a roof.
“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,” Omagh Fire Station district commander David Doherty told BT.com.
Bumper -- renamed “Gertrude” to commemorate the incident -- was out of the hutch by the time it crashed against the side of the house. But the bunny was still stuck on the roof.
Fortunately, firefighters were soon on the scene with multiple ladders and a reach pole. The rescue took less than 40 minutes, according to Mashable.
While we don’t know the specifics of Bumper/Gertrude’s living situation, this is a good time to remind everyone that pet rabbits are safer and happier when they live inside.
