Hare forced to swim for its life after leaping into raging torrent

A STARTLED hare swims for its life after leaping into a raging torrent.

The creature paddled 50ft into trouble after being disturbed by dolphin-spotter Martin Loftus, 39.

He said: “It was drifting in the current and getting weaker.

"I was on the verge of getting ready to swim out and save it.

"But somehow it got back to dry land.

"I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

“It had a moment to regain some composure until a herring gull started attacking it.”

The hare got pecked by a gull before racing off at Moray Firth, Scotland.
