Earless bunny's rising stardom snuffed when crushed to death by paparazzi

In this photo taken Wednesday, March 14, 2012, a two-week old earless bunny sits on the hands of a keeper at the zoo in Limbach-Oberfrohna, eastern Germany. The bunny that was a rising star on Germany's celebrity animal scene had its 15 minutes of fame brought to an abrupt end when he was accidentally stepped on by a television cameraman. The fate of 17-day-old Til the bunny with a genetic defect was plastered across German newspapers on Thursday, the same day a small zoo in Saxony was to have presented him to the world at a press conference. The unidentified cameraman who had been filming the bunny in its enclosure Wednesday told Bild he hadn't seen Til, who had buried himself in hay, when he took a step backward.

If Lindsay Lohan were teeny tiny she would have been crushed to death 3 probations ago.
RIP lil' guy.

“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,” zoo boss Uwe Dempewolf told Spiegel Online.
