The Russian Helipro company, which organizes heli-ski tours, was flying in Kamchatka, in far Eastern Russia, when it filmed a most usual sight -- a white rabbit charging through an avalanche.

The chopper was close to the Snow Valley Lodge on the Vilyuchinskiy Volcano when one of the snowboarders, David Carrier Porcheron, triggered an avalanche "and this crazy rabbit came in our shot," said spokesperson Ksenia Maguta.

The sequence, from May, was captured with a high-resolution Red Camera, the company said.
