Pet rabbit gets blown on to roof

A pet rabbit was thrown into the air by a storm battling the UK last week and was later found shaking on a rooftop.

The furry creature, named Bunny, had to be coaxed down with a tasty carrot after he was found on top of a roof in Omagh, Northern Ireland, by firefighters when strong winds knocked over his hutch and catapulted him into the air.

A Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson told the Express newspaper: "NIFRS received a call at 9:16am to a report of an animal rescue incident at residential premises at the Deverney Road area of Omagh. One Fire Appliance from Omagh Fire Station was deployed to the scene of a rabbit blown onto a roof in the area.

"Firefighters using a triple extension ladder, roofing ladder and a water rescue reach pole managed to rescue the rabbit. The rabbit has been safely returned to its owner."

Little Bumper is now safe and in the care of his owner.
