He's "like James Dean, a star dead before his time," according to The Local.
Spiegel Online says "the future had looked so bright for tiny Til."
Global Post somberly says that "an attempt to show a rare rabbit on TV took a tragic turn."
Wednesday at the Limbach-Oberfrohna Zoo in eastern Germany, officials were introducing their newest star to the news media when a photographer accidentally stepped on the little guy — Til, a three-week-old earless rabbit.
"We are all shocked. During the filming, the cameraman took a step back and trod on the bunny," zoo director Uwe Dempewolf said, according to Spiegel. "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."
