Teddy bear at Oregon office prompts bomb scare

The Associated Press

ALBANY, Ore. - A teddy bear placed at the front door of the Oregon State Police office in Albany proved to be as harmless as a teddy bear. Employees arriving for work Monday thought it might be a bomb. They evacuated the building, cleared the front parking lot of cars and called in the agency's bomb unit.

An X-ray image showed there were nothing dangerous inside the bear.

No decision had been made about what to do with the animal, which by the afternoon was sitting on a counter in the business office.

I wonder if the police had some reason to think someone wanted to harm them? Typical over reaction.......

  1. Can´t be too careful these days. Could have been an angry teddy bear. Perhaps he felt that, in some way, his rights had been trampled upon.
