Item #: SCP-4XXX

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation web crawlers and embedded agents in various police forces within the United States are to intercept any mention of possible SCP-XXXX manifestations and bring them to Foundation attention. Posts and emergency services calls regarding SCP-XXXX are to be censored and all affected individuals are to be apprehended for questioning and the administration of appropriate amnestics. Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be incinerated after approval by any personnel of Level 2/XXXX or greater.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to a small proportion of teddy bears within the continental United States that have been affected by an ectoentropic phenomenon wherein the materials that filled the bears are instantaneously replaced with anatomically correct internals for a bear of that size. This includes muscle tissue, bone, a complete set of internal organs, a circular system, and bodily fluids such as blood and bile. Despite containing a full working anatomy, no biological processes take place within the bears and none of the organ systems are connected to its exterior in any way.

While minor differences can be noticed between an affected and unaffected bear, oftentimes these changes go unnoticed until an affected bear is damaged in a significant manner. Upon being exposed to the environment, the instance will begin to decay at a normal rate, and does not display any further anomalous traits. Given that SCP-XXXX instances are typically in the possession of a child when the anomaly is revealed, the discovery of an affected bear is often a severely traumatic experience.

Addendum XXXX-A: Discovery Log.
Nicholas Hart, a 6 year old boy from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, called 911 on 03/18/2002. The following is a transcription of the initial conversation between Nicholas Hart and Tammy White, a Sioux Falls Police Dispatcher.

<Begin Log>

White: 911, what is your emergency?

Hart: <uncontrolled sobbing>

White: Hello? Is someone there? Can you hear me? Are you hurt?

Hart: <between sobs> He's dead! Jiffy is dead!

White: I'm sorry, young man, but I need to ask you to calm down so that I can understand you. Is someone hurt?

Hart: <continued heavy sobs> I… Jiffy…

White: I'm sorry, I still can't understand you very well, I need you to calm down and tell me what is going on. Take a deep breath.

Hart: <inhales deeply> I was playing with Jiffy outside even though Mommy says I'm not allowed to bring my toys outside and we were running in the yard and I wanted to go play in the woods so that Jiffy could see the woods and —

White: Wait, wait, wait, Jiffy is a toy?

Hart: He's my teddy. <sniffles>

White: Honey, you can't call 911 just because you broke one of your toys. That's not an emergency. Are either of your parents around?

Hart: <still crying> No! Jiffy needs a doctor right now! He got stuck on the fence and his insides fell out and they're all over the ground! He's hurt, you need to help him!

White: <inhales sharply> Alright, I'll send an officer to go talk to your parents and help Jiffy, does that sound okay to you?

Hart: Please! He's dying!

<End Log>

An officer arrived on the scene approximately 10 minutes later to find Nicholas Hart in the backyard of his house with his parents, all of whom were surrounding an instance of SCP-XXXX who had been ripped open across the abdomen by a chain-link fence, disemboweling it. This was the first known report of an instance of SCP-XXXX, and this call was reported to the Foundation when a field agent embedded in the municipal police department became aware of the story. All involved parties were amnesticized and the bear was replaced with an identical replica.
