The man could be seen jumping up and down in a panic before crouching down into the bush and attempting to grab the animal. The rabbit ultimately allowed the man to pick it up.

The man did not want to be interviewed.

The Thomas fire started Monday and has since grown to 90,000 acres. It has prompted evacuations across the region.
