Cork firefighter Tom Collins and friend

In case you haven’t seen it yet, photos of a firefighter in Cork giving a rabbit some water after a gorse fire that have gone viral . The man in the picture Tom Collins is my brother, here is a message from him:
“The fire was a gorse fire on the Sheep’s Head peninsula, we were putting out the fire when the rabbit came over to us looking a bit worse for ware. We carry bottles of drinking water with us so the natural thing to do was to cool it down wish a quick wash and give it a drink. Adrian Collins (no relation), a firefighter from Skibbereen, took a couple of photos [above] on his phone.”
The rabbit, meanwhile, ran away on his merry way after a drink….

Yesterday: We Didn’t Start The Fire
All the world’s a rabbit.
A new unhinged multiplication from UK animator Cyriak Harris, who says of it:
When I first had the idea for this video there were 7 billion people in the world, and I wanted to see what 7 billion of something actually looks like. I’m not entirely sure if I managed to create that many rabbits as I gave up counting them, and meanwhile 400 million new people appeared, so perhaps my work will never be done.

Bleedin’ Rabbit. Liberty Lane, Dublin 8
Actually his name’s Wallace.
His hunger for power may yet be his undoing.
Gazing skyward, propped up on the side of a military bunker at Dayuan Town Naval Base in Taiwan, the plywood and styrofoam bunny covered in 12,000 sheets of Tyvek paper, was inspired the East Asian fable of a giant rabbit that lives on the moon.
Sadly, Moon Bunny caught fire and was destroyed while being disassembled by local workers yesterday.
