SCP-976-J, prior to neutralization

Item #: SCP-976-J

Object Class: Euclid Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1973-J has been neutralized. All known instances of SCP-976-J have been neutralized. In the event of a future discovery of an instance of SCP-976-J, they are to be neutralized by any means necessary.

For previous containment protocols, see Addendum 1.

Description: SCP-976-J was a stone statue of an anthropomorphized Scalopus aquaticus standing on a pile of earth holding a shovel. A Prometheus Labs, Inc. logo was printed on the underside of the statue.

SCP-976-J was able to teleport by methods unknown. Though teleportation of distances up to one kilometer were observed, 98.7% of recorded “jumps” fell within a normalized distribution of ten meters (with a two meter standard deviation). Jumps occurred at apparently random intervals, but never more frequently than once per thirty minutes.

If/when SCP-976-J was dealt major physical damage which would otherwise destroy a similar statue, it would jump between one and ten minutes after receiving the damage, reappearing elsewhere fully repaired. For details on destruction attempts, see Addendum 2.

SCP-976-J appeared at Site 11 on ██/██/1989. After repeated attempts to transfer the statue to alternate locations failed and the object repeatedly appeared in sensitive areas containing classified documents, it was deemed a probable surveillance device and approved for destruction on ██/██/1990. Despite the Prometheus Labs origin, it is unknown whether that organization is responsible for SCP-976-J's appearance at Site 11, or whether persons unknown were using their product to conduct surveillance against the Foundation.

Attempts at neutralization, performed at Site 11’s Secure Annex, were hampered both by SCP-976-J’s repeated attempts to return to Site 11 and its capacity for self-repair.

SCP-976-J was finally neutralized on ██/██/1997.

Addendum 1: Former Special Containment Protocols For SCP-976-J

SCP-976-J is to be kept in a standard Euclid-rated containment safe with sufficient interior volume to hold it.

Procedures deemed insufficient after SCP-976-J simply teleported to sit on top of the safe.

SCP-976-J is to be kept within a custom containment safe created with the "Very Fine" setting of SCP-914.

Procedures deemed insufficient after SCP-976-J simply teleported to sit on top of the safe.

SCP-976-J is to be kept in the center of a standard containment room no smaller than thirteen (13) meters wide by thirteen (13) meters long. Constant video surveillance is to be maintained. Should SCP-976-J teleport, it is to be replaced at the center of the room.

Procedures deemed insufficient following a 987 meter teleportation jump in the direction of Site 11.

Addendum 2: Record of Neutralization Attempts For SCP-976-J
Due to a combination of SCP-976-J's teleportation capabilities (making transfer to other locations difficult), and the security risk of showing SCP-976-J containment protocols of other SCPs, Foundation Counterintelligence requested neutralization attempts utilizing other SCPs be kept to an absolute minimum.

Attempt: Impact with 9.1 kg sledgehammer.
Result: SCP-976-J shattered. Five minutes later, object teleports to eight meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Immersion in sulfuric acid.
Result: SCP-976-J dissolved. Ten minutes later, object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Immersion in concentrated chlorine trifluoride.
Result: SCP-976-J apparently destroyed. Six minutes later, object teleports to eleven meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Shot with shotgun.
Result: SCP-976-J shattered. Four minutes later, object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Shot with anti-materiel rifle.
Result: SCP-976-J shattered. Five minutes later, object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Detonation of 2000 kg high explosive charge.
Result: SCP-976-J obliterated. Ten minutes later, object teleports to fifty meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Bombarded with gamma radiation.
Result: SCP-976-J displays no observable change. Nine minutes later, object teleports to twelve meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Fed to SCP-682.
Result: SCP-976-J fails to reappear; deemed neutralized.
Notes: We don't know if simply feeding this to 682 was actually what destroyed the thing, or if it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. For that matter, we don't even know if this thing is actually destroyed - it might be taking detailed pictures of 682's innards. - Dr. ██████, 976-J Neutralization Team Leader

Addendum 3: Intelligence Report ██/██/1998
Following the cleanup of the Prometheus Labs facility, documents were recovered suggesting the possible existence of up to ██ more instances of SCP-976-J. No further instances have been recovered. There are more of the fucking things? It takes us seven years to destroy one of them, and you're telling me there are more?! Goddammit! - Foundation Counterintelligence Director ████████.
