Rare earless rabbit meets horrible fate

In a tragic turn of events, a rare earless rabbit was killed just before it could gain its 15 minutes of TV fame. The three-week-old bunny, born to eared parents along with 5 other eared kits, had an extremely rare birth defect that resulted in it having no ears at all.

“Everyone here is upset,” zoo director Uwe Dempewolf told the Spiegel, adding that the cameraman was “distraught.”
