This Video of a Man Saving a Rabbit from California's Wildfires is Exactly What We Needed Today

With wildfires burning through more than 100,000 acres and people rapidly fleeing greater Los Angeles -- over 200,000 people have been told to evacuate their homes -- the City of Angels and its surroundings look they've been taken straight out of a nightmare.

And while emergency crews are fighting the brisk winds, steep terrain and, most likely, fatigue after days of relentless work, they got some unexpected help the other day.

One brave man stopped along a Ventura Highway engulfed in smoke and flames to save a wild rabbit that was heading towards the ravaging fire.

While at first witnesses couldn't see what the man was so concerned about -- clutching his head, jumping and pacing anxiously along the side of the road -- the reason for his distress became apparent as soon as he managed to grab a hold of the tiny animal.

The man refused to comment about the event and, despite extensive media coverage, his identity remains unknown.

What we do know is that this video of a man saving a rabbit from the hellish scenario comes as a welcome relief after all the damage and destruction the fires have caused. Not to mention that it's exactly what we needed to see today.
