While yesterday was Father’s Day, today we honor a mother who puts her own life on the line to defend her baby.

A baby rabbit is captured by a snake. When the mother rabbit see what’s happening to her baby, she reacts as most moms would — she attacks the snake. And she doesn’t just get it away from her baby. She continues to chase and battle it for quite awhile. Check out this impressive act by the fearless mother rabbit in the amazing video below.
