An exclusive and expensive 'Butterscotch My FurReal Friends' toy pony was blown up after it was discovered suspiciously lurking in a cul-de-sac near Waterbridge Elementary School in Orlando.

Cautious police officers cited concerns of potential terrorism, but in fact may have been frightened by the toy pony's lifelike behavior. It moves its head when touched or talked to, wiggles its ears, blinks its eyes, swishes its tail and makes real pony sounds. The toy pony was blown up while students in the nearby Waterbridge Elementary School were kept in lock-down.
