TV Cameraman kills rare rabbit with no ears while filming news story

by | 14th, March 2012

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…
