Polar Bear Scare

The bomb squad responded to call about a suspicious package yesterday near the Columbia Heights Metro station in Washington, DC. Citizens had observed a polar bear rummaging in a trash can. They said he had been there for hours. The Metro station and the surrounding area were evacuated. Ambulances and fire trucks were on hand to respond.
Onlookers watched a bomb technician in a blast suit walk slowly toward the bear, then pounce and cut it open. He pulled out wads of newspaper until the big, white head flopped over.

The bear was a mannikin mannequin. Was it street art, a political statement, or both? Link

The DCist believes that the artist is Mark Jenkins. Link -via Arbroath
