A teddy bear has been implicated in 2,500 deaths...

...Of trout, that is. State officials say a teddy bear dropped into a pool at a Fish and Game Department hatchery earlier this month clogged a drain. The clog blocked the flow of oxygen to the pool and suffocated the fish:

'Hatcheries supervisor Robert Fawcett said the bear — who was dressed in yellow raincoat and hat — is believed to be the first stuffed bear to cause fatalities at the facility.' Read full report here

Okay, this isn't strictly 'new mobilities', I was just seeing if anyone was awake...
