Item #: SCP-1507
Object class: Safe Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1507 is to be contained in wilderness observation cell-1b with standard security procedures. Instances of SCP-1507 are tolerant of human activity, and are fond of playing with staff Staff members should not be allowed to access SCP-1507 without being accompanied by security. Any staff members entering the enclosure must wear protective clothing covering the head and body. Access is only permitted to inspect the cage and for research purposes. If SCP-1507 appears to be vocalizing more frequently than is considered normal, the on-site sound-dampening speakers must be activated until the vocalizations cease.
Description: SCP-1507 is a set of 15 26 pink plastic lawn flamingos made in Coral Springs, FL. Instances of SCP-1507 have the same behavior patterns as a normal specimen of Phoeniconais ruber ruber, but do not require feeding. Instances of SCP-1507 are vulnerable to the same pressures ordinary plastic would be vulnerable to, such as heat and pressure. Testing has shown they do not possess a complex intelligence. Instances of SCP-1507 are universally hostile towards humans, and have been known to attack personnel who enter the enclosure by dropping down on them, using their metal stands to create scratch wounds and puncture wounds in their victim's face and eyes. SCP-1507 will frequently appear docile until it attacks, leading to several cases of severe injury among research staff.
SCP-1507 was first discovered on 09/18/1991, in Jacksonville, Florida. They first came to the Foundations attention when the Foundation followed up on a 911 call in which the caller claimed to have been attacked by several lawn flamingos. When the house the call originated from was investigated, Foundation operatives found a man dead from puncture wounds, with 15 instances of SCP-1507 living in the house. All members of SCP-1507 were contained with little incident. Since its containment, no major incidents have occurred, and as such it has been classified as safe. Amended, see Incident 1507-A and -B
