A toy pony caused a bomb scare Tuesday morning in Orange County, Florida. The bomb squad was called in to investigate the suspicious equine which was left in a playground near an elementary school. Realizing that no child would forget such a fine example of stuffed horse, a robot was sent in to investigate. This initiated a partial lockdown of the school, and evacuating homes in the area. After deciding that a full lockdown and evacuation might not be a big enough overreaction to an abandoned toy on a playground, they decided to play it safe and just blow it up. After a thorough investigation the pony was determined to be non-threatening. Check out the video footage of the pony being taken down a peg."
