Firefighters earn PETA praise for saving rabbits
Animal rights advocates praise firefighters' efforts to save rabbits from burning Fla. home
Animal rights advocates are praising some Florida firefighters for helping to save rabbits from a burning house.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Friday it was giving its Compassionate Fire Department Award to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.
The agency saved a woman from a burning Boynton Beach house last week, and also brought to safety four pet rabbits. They used an oxygen mask to help one suffering from smoke inhalation.
