The Limbach-Oderfrohna Zoo in Eastern Germany was holding a big media event to introduce three-week-old Til. Til was (that's right, I said "was") a rare earless mutant rabbit, that met a tragic end when a photographer took a backward step into the animal’s pen crushing him. Until that moment (ironically) Til was living in a private enclosure for his protection even though there had been requests to put him on show to the public.
Til died instantly as Zoo official's aspirations of world-wide fame for him, were crushed... ummm dashed... ahh trampled... I'm going to just stop now. Then again, between this story and the possibility of Til being stuffed for display, he may still get his 15 minutes of fame.
Let this be a lesson to all you photographers out there. Chimping kills. (Oh! I see a t-shirt in this.)
Remember the lesson we learned from this guy? Apparently Til's killer didn't.
Update: Some of our more observant reads have found other articles that prove the "photographer" to actually be a camerman. But hey, it's a fluff piece.
