Enclosed report by Major J. Ready regarding 10/13/1950 incident:
“One of the workers did not lock the door to the containment unit properly today after filing down SCP-010’s horns. A fan was on two doors down from the containment unit. Suddenly there was a large booming sound, like thunder, and I saw SCP-010 prying open the containment unit door. The subject was still heavily sedated and had difficulty moving, and several personnel, including myself rushed forward to push it back in. There was another booming noise and several personnel fell backward. It looked like they had been electrocuted. After several minutes, we were able to return the subject into the unit and seal it. It kept crying the entire time while it tried to escape and when it was sealed, security cameras showed the subject huddled and laughing.”
Suggest that subject be sedated permanently to avoid future complications. Fans and all methods of air conditioning are now restricted from area surrounding containment. Suggest tranquilizer guns be equipped to all personnel in future.
