Abandoned Giant Teddy Bear

He was abandoned by his owners at LAX after the airline and TSA determined that he was just too big to be screened as a carry-on and taken on the plane,” the saga began.

Things then took a dark turn when the administration essentially declared the bear homeless. “If you see this wayward bear strolling the streets of LA, please feel free to feed him,” this post said.

Because that wasn’t heartbreaking enough, in an update to the post, the TSA later revealed that the bear’s “family” was given the option to take it on the plane but made the conscious decision to abandon it.

“The passenger had actually bought a ticket for the bear. After the airline and TSA decided the bear was too large, the airline offered to refund the ticket and the traveler was given the option of checking the bear as checked baggage,” the account explained. Then came the blow. “The traveler opted not to check the bear and left it behind.”

We repeat: the traveler opted not to check the bear and left the adorable, cuddly stuffed animal behind.
