Being a policeman in Dublin, Ireland, means you have duties beyond serving and protecting human beings. You've got the added responsibility of saving adorable little bunnies who get caught out in the snow!
The Dublin Airport Police caught the whole incident on video:
The airport began sending out updates on the bunny. Apparently some people had trouble telling what it was from the video...
Rescue update. He's a leveret - a baby hare. He's still fine.— Dublin Airport (@DublinAirport) March 3, 2018
The hare was named Emma and she became fast friends with the airport staff.
@DublinAirport UPDATE: After dad rescuing the hare, we have her at home in safe hands and called her EMMA ❄️ hopefully she’s a little fighter & will strengthen so we can release her back into the wild- her home✨— L.McC (@mccaheyleahhxo) March 3, 2018

Followers of the Dublin Airport's Twitter (a surprisingly large number) were grateful to police and airport staff for keeping the hare safe.
Some people expressed their relief with questionable puns:
Did you check him for contraband? It could just be a coinín plan.— Nick McGivney (@nmcgivney) March 3, 2018
It's hard not to fall in love with a little bunny so willing to ask for help!
So cool ! It was like it was coming over asking for help...— Robbie Kane (@robbiekane74) March 3, 2018
Aw it's as if he wanted that kind soul to rescue him/her : by scurrying over!! 😭— Lu Coyle (@luisa_coyle) March 3, 2018
But what has become of this hare's family?
Hope she’s OK. Thought I saw a massive hare running through the snow while taxiing to the runway before take off on Wednesday. Then it just sat there watching the planes.— Dave Strachan-Morris (@davidsm459) March 3, 2018
No need to worry! Emma went home with her rescuer and is resting comfortably for now.
Hareport News: the rescued baby hare is getting some TLC with our colleague who found it & his family. He's a she, they've called her Emma & will release her back into the wild when she's back to full health. Thanks so much to @mccaheyleahhxo for the picture. #HareEmma pic.twitter.com/rHi5ZL3eU4— Dublin Airport (@DublinAirport) March 3, 2018
