Things they don't teach you about in journalism school.

A TV girl was sent to report on an orphan squirrel being raised by a pet cat — and killed the rodent by accidentally stepping on it.

Inka Blumensaat, of German station NDR, had hoped to film the heartwarming tale of the unlikely animal pals.

But it all went wrong as the squirrel climbed up her leg and she panicked.

Cat owner Heike Reher, 45, of Luebeck, said: “She leapt about like a mad woman and squashed it.

“Everyone looked in horror where the squirrel lay in a pool of blood. I was in tears.”

Story in The Sun.
