TV Cameraman kills rare rabbit with no ears while filming news story
TIL, a bunny rabbit with no ears, has been killed by a cameraman filming it for a news feature. Til had been born at a zoo Limbach-Oberfrohna in Saxony, eastern Germany, a few days ago.
Til had the making of a media darling. Cute. Fury. Edible. But now sadly dead.
Uwe Dempewolf, the director of the zoo, tells Speigel:
“We are all shocked. During the filming, the cameraman took a step back and trod on the bunny. He was immediately dead, he didn’t suffer. It was a direct hit. No one could have foreseen this. Everyone here is upset. The cameraman was distraught.”
The rabbit never heard him coming:
“We had planned a news conference for tomorrow and we wanted to market it via the media because rabbits without ears are pretty rare.”
And now they are that little bit rarer…
Note: Til is being stuffed. It being what he would have wanted. Pass the chestnuts and basil…
