The bomb squad in Orange County Florida detonated a toy pony that had been left in a cul-de-sac near an elementary school. It is presented here as an example of rampant crazy fear and over zealous law enforcement overcoming common sense. Perhaps it belonged to a child nearby?
From the Orlando Sentinel:
A “suspicious” toy pony was blown up after it was found abandoned in the middle of a cul-de-sac near an Orange County elementary school this morning.
The FurReal pony, an expensive, life-like toy, was investigated as a possible explosive device after someone called Orange County deputies to report it. A robot inspected the toy before a pack of explosives was placed near the stuffed animal and detonated.
