An earless baby bunny,that was a rising star on Germany’s celebrity animal scene,had his 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,a 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 cameraman told Bild newspaper he hadn’t seen Til,who had buried himself in hay,when he took the fateful step backward.

Zoo director Uwe Dempewolf tells Spiegel magazine Til didn’t suffer: “It was a direct hit.”
