Repter Terlion's Case Files

Item #: SCP-F

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-F must be kept in a 10x10x4 meter 30x30x10 meter enclosure, exposed to direct sunlight, natural water sources1 and air free of contamination. The enclosure should be routinely checked for any insect colonies, and if found, these must be exterminated thoroughly. Any bacteria or virus detected nearby SCP-F's enclosure will require its inoculation against it, preferably through the use of a drinkable solution. SCP-F's enclosure's alarms should not produce sound, but instead directly message involved staff through a secure network to an associated personal web address, used exclusively for this purpose. Mismanagement of said address is punishable by reassignment and/or demotion.

Three times per day, drugged sedated physically impaired prey appropriate for a member of the Vulpes vulpes family should be released into the enclosure for the purpose of feeding. Physical impairments must not result in the considerable rupture of bone tissue, due to the possibility of a choking hazard. Outside of authorized prey, no other animals are allowed within SCP-F's enclosure. The only plants allowed within are grass and a variety of trees stipulated in Document-F-03.

Entry into its enclosure is only allowed to level 3 or higher clearance personnel. E-class veterinary personnel should be available at all times near SCP-F's enclosure, and a bi-weekly check up must be performed, with care not to distress or harm SCP-F in any way. Testing regarding SCP-F requires unanimous authorization by all research staff.

Should SCP-F exit its enclosure, staff should vacate the premises and notify high command. This will be followed by the deployment of MTF Theta-13 ("Lucky hunters"), tasked with the re-containment of SCP-F.

Following recent incidents, one member of staff is authorized to enter SCP-F's enclosure bi-weekly to "play" with it, to prevent further deterioration of mental well-being.

Description: SCP-F is a male Vulpes vulpes. It is physically identical to an average member of its species, although it seems remarkably smarter, believed to be comparable to a small child in intelligence and problem solving capacities. SCP-F is friendly, and enjoys the presence of human beings. SCP-F also does not seem to age, and as such it is unknown how old it is.

SCP-F's anomalous properties present themselves whenever it would be damaged or hurt. SCP-F is capable of modifying causality around it to prevent any damaging or harmful events from affecting it. Said modifications usually manifest in the form of considerably destructive methods of neutralizing the threat(s), often times capable of resulting in a chain reaction of multiple causality modifications. SCP-F seems aware of this ability, and as such has little regard for its well-being and an apparent lack of fear.

SCP-F seems to have an easy predisposition to depression, and a desire to return to the forest of [REDACTED], where it was recovered. SCP-F has been known to trigger its own abilities in order to damage its enclosure, and as such personnel should be acutely aware of its current emotional state in order to prevent possible breaches.

Addendum: Testing log
Testing the limits of SCP-F's causal reconstruction capabilities required extensive preparations and safety precautions, as often times SCP-F poses a risk to itself when neutralizing threats, resulting in causal reconstructions beyond expected models. Furthermore, an extensive record of the procedure and elements had to be kept to detect all causal modifications performed by SCP-F. Below is an abridged list of tests performed.

Test F01
Preparations: SCP-F was transported to a clearing in the [REDACTED] forest, where it was recovered, to see what was believed to be a baseline neutralization.
Threat: D-90733 personnel instructed to "punt the fox" as hard as he could.
Neutralization: D-90733 failed to notice a tree branch collapse above him, and was struck with enough force to fracture the cranium and leave him unconscious.
Causal reconstruction: No conflicting records detected.

Test F02
Preparations: SCP-F was moved to a sealed 2x2x2m containment unit, lacking furnishing of any kind
Threat: D-12262, same orders
Neutralization: D-12262 slipped on the surface and fell directly on his neck, suffering from a severe fracture and rendering him quadriplegic.
Causal reconstruction: Records conflicted regarding the state of the unit, it is believed the floor of the unit was not as slippery when initially constructed.

Test F10
Preparations: SCP-F was restrained in a 2x2x2m containment unit by metallic arms while sedated.
Threat: SCP-F would be shot with a mechanism attached to a glock 18, controlled remotely by D-11005.
Neutralization: The glock failed to fire, as it appeared to have no bullets. After being refiled, it jammed. This repeated itself 3 times. On the third jamming, D-11005 was instructed to retrieve the weapon, and upon doing so, it fired, ricocheting off the walls and impacting the mechanism. The mechanism managed to destroy one of the walls of the enclosure, missing SCP-F by a small margin. SCP-F then proceeded to leave the enclosure, constituting a containment breach. SCP-F was successfully sedated via airborne amnestics after 5 hours, the deaths of 6 personnel and the destruction of roughly 50% of the testing site.
Causal reconstruction: The testing site appears to have been built well below Foundation standards. Furthermore, the force with which the mechanism impacted the enclosure is far in excess of what records indicate it should've been able to exert without breaking down.

Test F11
Preparations: SCP-F was within an enclosure similar to its standard one, but substantially smaller.
Threat: A Brown Bear (Ursus Arctos), released into the enclosure. Specimen had not been fed in 90 hours.
Neutralization: As the specimen noticed SCP-F, it began quickly approaching it, before stopping 4 meters from it. Specimen seemed to be under extreme distress, and SCP-F began approaching it. The specimen kept its ground as SCP-F approached, and collapsed when it was within one meter of it. SCP-F climbed onto the specimen, and playfully prodded it. After a minute, SCP-F seemed to give up and leave the specimen. Examination revealed the specimen collapsed from exhaustion, and had died within the enclosure.
Causal reconstruction: The specimen is believed to have been fed prior to this, as the test was permitted by the Ethic's Committee, despite that, per Ethic's Committee regulations, animals utilized in experiments cannot be subjected to such conditions.
This reaction was far less destructive than prior results, even if it still lead to the specimen's death. This could signify that SCP-F reacts more aggressively towards active attempts to neutralize it. I recommend a cessation of all testing of this nature regarding SCP-F, as increasing lethality could cause far more destructive reactions and could even compromise secrecy. -Research Lead Dr. Timothy

As of ██/██/2009, tests regarding SCP-F's causal reconstruction are now prohibited for security reasons.
