"Hare"raising Rescue

Two young men from Gilroy, California "intermittently" hop in their local creek if water levels rise and search for stranded animals. Decked out in wetsuits, booties, helmets, boogie boards with ropes, life vests, fins and gloves. they floated down Uvas Creek and found a small wild rabbit clinging for life to a clump of twigs and bushes. They rescued the rabbit and released it to munch on grass on a nearby knoll. However, their good deed was noticed by an officer from the Gilroy Police Department who ticketed the brothers for going into the creek. Both were unaware of the ordinance. According to the article the heros were unfazed by the tickets and pleased to have rescued the rabbit. Photo: Scott and Gregory Adams with rescue rabbit, Gilroy Dispatch.
