An instance of SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX are to be kept within a large enclosure surrounded by high grade soundproofing material. As of Incident XXXX-14P, SCP-XXXX are to be kept within separate pens surrounded by high grade soundproofing material. SCP-XXXX are to be provided food, water, and bedding through a small chute located at the top of each enclosure. No personnel are to enter any SCP-XXXX’s pen, unless provided sufficient ear protection. Even so, this is not advised due to the risk of permanent hearing damage.

SCP-XXXX-A is to be kept within a standard containment cell lined with high grade soundproofing material. It is to be located 30 meters away from all SCP-XXXX. As SCP-XXXX-A does not appear to need sustenance to survive, it is recommended that no personnel enter SCP-XXXX-A’s containment cell. All instances of SCP-XXXX produced by SCP-XXXX are to be recovered by 1 D-Class and incinerated before they reach maturity.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a flock of 46 biologically modified Cheviot sheep. Instances of SCP-XXXX have 3 tubelike structures extending from their torso. These structures are constructed out of bone, and appear to have not been surgically implanted. X-ray examination has found the stomachs of SCP-XXXX to be surrounded by a cloth like material, with the structures leading inside.

SCP-XXXX do not bleat like average sheep. When instances attempt to bleat, they produce a sound similar to a bagpipe. This sound originates from the stomach of instances, and is expelled through the tubelike structures. To produce this sound, instances take in a large quantity of air through their throats, which have been found to resemble blowpipes. Expelling this air does not appear to cause discomfort within SCP-XXXX instances.

When an instance of SCP-XXXX is threatened, it will breathe in a large quantity of air, and release a note through its pipes at approximately 120-130 decibels. This noise will continue for approximately 15 seconds, causing irreparable hearing damage for anyone within 1.6 km of the sound. If an instance of SCP-XXXX lets out this noise, other SCP-XXXX will produce a noise of similar frequency, causing additional damage.

SCP-XXXX-A is a large, immobile instance of SCP-XXXX with several different biological modifications. Unlike other SCP-XXXX instances, SCP-XXXX-A has approximately 200 different tubelike structures protruding from its back. These structures are similar in design to those on average SCP-XXXX instances, and outwardly appear to have the same function. The stomach of SCP-XXXX-A is severely deformed, presummable to contain all of the structures. SCP-XXXX-A constantly emits a note of an unknown pitch that induces temporary muteness and deafness within any living creature that hears it. It is not known if SCP-XXXX-A is in control of this noise, but it has been shown to be otherwise docile.

Every 2 to 8 weeks, a large ball of cotton will be violently ejected from one of SCP-XXXX-A's tubes. These balls will slowly grow the limbs and internal structures of an SCP-XXXX, until it is fully formed after approximately 3 weeks. When in the presence of SCP-XXXX-A, SCP-XXXX instances will form a herd around SCP-XXXX, acting as a barrier. If any entity larger than an instance of SCP-XXXX attempts to approach the herd, the instances will begin to attack the entity until it is incapacitated or deceased, then will return to SCP-XXXX-A.

Incident XXXX-14P: Displaying previously unseen cooperation skills, the flock of SCP-XXXX instances were able to create a frequency high enough to shatter a nearby observation window and breach containment. These instances rushed directly to SCP-XXXX-A’s containment chamber and began attempting to breach its chamber. 12 personnel were injured during the breach, with 7 suffering permanent hearing loss, until MTF-Omicron-8 (“Burke’s Boys”) were called to aid in herding SCP-XXXX instances back into containment.

Addendum: SCP-XXXX was discovered in an abandoned field in Kelso, Scotland on 09/04/██ when a farmer in the area reported discovering a large herd of "screaming sheep" to police officials. Foundation operatives intercepted the call, and MTF-Omicron-8 ("Burke's Boys") were send to investigate. Due to the size of the flock formerly surrounding SCP-XXXX-A being approximately 10 times larger than its current size, the MTF team was forced to eliminate a significant number of SCP-XXXX. Documents found within a partially collapsed barn near SCP-XXXX’s location of discovery, SCP-XXXX is thought to be associated with the now disbanded GoI Melodic Menageries (henceforth referred to as GoI-028C), a group focused the animation and creation of anomalous instruments during the early 1900s. GoI-028C is currently theorized to have disbanded due to a past localized Trinity-Zero Event, though the specific cause is unknown. Investigation into the cause of GoI-028C’s collapse and anomalous items created by the organization are currently ongoing.
