Nothing to Fear except...Toy Pony

Thanks to Boing Boing for this one.
A “suspicious” toy pony was blown up after it was found abandoned in the middle of a cul-de-sac near an Orange County elementary school this morning.
The FurReal pony, an expensive, life-like toy, was investigated as a possible explosive device after someone called Orange County deputies to report it. A robot inspected the toy before a pack of explosives was placed near the stuffed animal and detonated.

There is video:
Video of the bomb squad locking down a school so that they can blow up an unattended toy. A toy left next to a public park.

Once we had nothing to fear but fear it's self. But now we are so afraid that we will blow up toys? Unbeleivable.
