Item #: SCP-70443
Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-70443 must be kept in a sealed room. Walls and floor must be reinforced with approximately two (2) inches of steel.
No personnel, regardless of level, may enter SCP-70443's containment unit alone. Teams of two (2) or more are required for routine checks. Anyone found to have entered the containment unit alone will be removed for psychological analysis, then reviewed for re-entry into the facility. If deemed unfit, the employee in question will be [DATA EXPUNGED].
SCP-70443 takes the form of a stuffed animal, exactly one (1) foot tall. It shows no signs of life or sentience. However, security footage shows the subject appearing in different areas of the containment unit. SCP-70443 is never seen in motion; a short malfunction of all cameras in the unit precedes each change in location.
Those who have spent prolonged amounts of time in the vicinity of SCP-70443 have reported headaches, and a feeling of strong paranoia. After extremely prolonged exposure, one personnel member entered a catatonic state. The personnel member's current condition is [DATA EXPUNGED].
SCP-70443 was discovered due to its interference with radio waves. The object was located on a small island directly south of [DATA EXPUNGED], and was sitting on a lone rock near the shore. No humans were found on the island, and wildlife was scarce. It is unknown how or when SCP-70443 arrived in that location. Immediately after discovery, a twenty four (24) hour watch over the subject occurred to determine its nature. When deemed reasonably safe to do so, SCP-70433 was transported to the facility for containment and further testing.

Another object was discovered near the scene of SCP-70443's original sighting. When placed in close proximity to SCP-70443, this object appears to cancel out the effects of SP-70443 on the human mind, and even promote a more healthy mental state.
