Newtown Bee is responsible along with national and international media in much disinfo re Sandy Hook.
Obviously any child who was close enough to the scene as they were to hear live gunshots would NOT then associate any attack with 'wild animal' which in fact are noie nearly extinct in most parts of the world in great part due to human guns and destruction of habitat.
Sandy Hook kids thought 'wild animal' responsible for Newtown massacre
CHILD survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre believed a 'wild animal' had caused the bloodshed in their school.A report in the New Yorker reveals a rumour which spread among a group of children in the aftermath of the December 14 mass shooting.
The children had been told to close their eyes as they were led out of their primary school after the rampage by Adam Lanza, 20.
One seven-year-old boy spoke to Shannon Hicks, a volunteer firefighter and a local Newtown Bee reporter, as she escorted him and other survivors to the nearby firehouse.
The boy reportedly asked Ms Hicks if there had been a wild animal in the building. ‘Yes honey’, she replied.
The children then whispered to each other down the line, 'a wild animal, a wild animal, a wild animal.’
Ms Hicks’ photograph of a class of students being escorted from the building was used around the world and has become the iconic picture of the tragedy, in which Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy, before travelling to Sandy Hook and killing 20 children and six staff. He later committed suicide.
The New Yorker also reveals that police initially thought that there could be up to 60 victims and tells of the moment that parents realised their children had been killed.
Parents had been asked to come to the firehouse but as the number of children left to be claimed got fewer and fewer it felt like the ‘room was filling up with some kind of gas’, said John Voket, also with the Newtown Bee.
When one mother realised that her child would not be coming back, a rabbi who was in the firehouse stood by her asking her to breathe.
He said: ''My focus was cardiac arrest. I didn’t want the physiological reaction to kill her.''
Meanwhile, Facebook has agreed to remove some so-called tribute pages related to the shooting over concerns they're being used to exploit the tragedy, said US Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Families and politicians had requested the removal of offending pages in a letter to Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg.
There were concerns the pages have been used to exploit or harass victims’ families
In a letter to Mr Zuckerberg, there were concerns raised about a tribute site to teacher Victoria Soto, which included postings from conspiracy theorists who claim the shootings were staged, and that Soto and others were actors.
Another Facebook page titled ''Kaitlin Roig is a Hero'' contains numerous well-wishes but also prompted abusive posts, such as one that reads, ''Congratulations Kaitlin or whatever your name is.. Now you're famous and got to meet the 'President.' You ought to be ashamed of yourself.''
There has been one fraud arrest already connected to a Sandy Hook Facebook posting.
Nouel Alba, a 37-year-old New York City woman, is accused of using her Facebook account, telephone calls and text messages to seek donations for what she called a "funeral fund." She allegedly told one donor that she had to enter the scene of the mass shooting in Newtown to identify her nephew.
