It was a woolly ride, but three wild rabbits managed to escape rising floodwaters in New Zealand by clambering aboard sheep and surfing to safety on their backs. Ferg Horne, 64, says he's been farming since he left school at age 15 and has never seen anything quite like it.As he got closer, he thought it might be debris from the storm, which had drenched the area and forced Horne to evacuate his home.Then he saw the bedraggled rabbits hitching a ride – two on one sheep and a third on another sheep.Horne herded the sheep to a patch of dry ground on the farm about 50 meters away.The floodwaters were receding, the sheep were all safe and the rabbits were long gone.
