Lost In The Woods
rating: +13+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Accounts of SCP-XXXX instances are to be discredited as hallucinations caused by a combination of dehydration and hunger. Evidence of SCP-XXXX instances, such as snapped branches and partly devoured deer corpses, are to be explained as the natural result of non-anomalous wildlife.

Attempts to capture SCP-XXXX instances are still underway.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to a species of wildlife inhabiting the Rocky Mountain National Park. All accounts of SCP-XXXX instances originated from hikers who had become lost in the park for more than twenty four hours. Rangers who recover these hikers report that they are generally in a catatonic state, unconsciously singing the following song:

> Into the woods

Away we go
You know the way?
I don't think so

Into the woods
Away we go
We're here to see the journey

Subjects do not have strong recollections of their encounters with SCP-XXXX instances, which is most likely due to the strain on their mental faculties caused by being stranded in the elements. However, there some similarities between reports, which include:

  • Descriptions of areas of the park that do not match known locations
  • SCP-XXXX instances are never seen near any documented trails
  • SCP-XXXX instances are not hostile
