I wrote earlier about the teddy bear who’d collapsed on his way towards my apartment. Unfortunately not all the toys in San Francisco are so lucky. In rougher neighborhoods, like Haight-Ashbury, you come across scenes like this one. Mac and I had a Stand By Me moment a while back when we came across this bear’s body lying on the road in front of a car. It looked innocent enough until we came closer to the scene and realized that his head had been crushed!
No witnesses saw the incident, but investigators are saying it’s a case of post-picnic violence. The victim was most likely gaily dancing about while his assailant was watching him, catching him unawares. At six o’clock, his mommy and daddy arrived on the scene to take him home to bed, but instead found this.
Also, another SFist post is up.
