SCP-XXXX shortly after sedation during initial recovery.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a concrete containment chamber, and is to be monitored by video surveilance at all times. SCP-XXXX's chamber is to be fitted with concealed anesthetic gas vents, which are to be used for retrieval of SCP-XXXX's creations, waste cleanup, or if SCP-XXXX becomes violent against personnel or attempts a containment breach. Unless required for a test, no metallic substances are to be present within SCP-XXXX's chamber at any time. Personnel are not to enter SCP-XXXX's chamber at any point, regardless of security clearance. SCP-XXXX is to be provided with approximately 10 kilograms of wood each day to feed on.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a species of bear, appearing to be closely related to the Ursus Arctos (Brown Bear). However, SCP-XXXX is much larger than other relatives within the Ursae family, with its head-and-body length measuring at approximately 3.7 meters, and its shoulder height reaching 2.1 meters. It has black fur, which its lower half seems to have shed much of, leaving its skin exposed.

SCP-XXXX's diet consists of wood, leather, cloth, plastic, and most of all, metal objects which contain substances such as iron, bronze, brass, copper, lead, and various others. After consuming these objects, SCP-XXXX regurgitates a weapon of equal mass to the amount of material it ingested in that given instance (See test logs for examples). SCP-XXXX's throat and abdomen will often visibly convulse and reshape, as though the weapon were being "built" within SCP-XXXX. These weapons vary based on the amount of material consumed, and as of now it seems that SCP-XXXX will only ingest a maximum of approximately 7.5 kilograms of matter in any given instance. If metal does not make up the majority of SCP-XXXX's "meal," it will not regurgitate any of the substance, and will excrete the waste product as normal. As of now, SCP-XXXX does not seem to be capable of producing firearms.

SCP-XXXX was discovered on June ██ of 2002, in the town of ███████, West Virginia. Local animal control forces were alerted to what looked to be a large black bear roaming near the town's shopping mall. Witnesses stated that it was "biting chunks out of trees and telephone poles" and causing them to fall, after which it would continue to consume them. By the time Foundation personnel had arrived, SCP-XXXX had killed █ Animal Control officers, and badly injured 2 policemen. One of the surviving police officers stated, "It didn't even eat them. It just ripped them apart. They looked like stuffed animals getting flung around by a kid." Any persons within the town were treated with Class B amnestics shortly after Foundation cleanup and recovery had concluded.

Addendum 1: -Until further notice, we are not to provide any more metal to SCP-XXXX. There is zero chance we will ever use any of the weaponry it produces, so it is ultimately just a waste of resources. Just keep it alive and keep it from mauling anyone. - Dr. Collins

Addendum 2: -The next person that makes the "right to bear arms" joke is to be thrown into SCP-XXXX's chamber. - Dr. Thomas
