Item #: SCP-292
Object Class: Safe/Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-292 requires no specialized containment procedures but should be left alone with a dead bovine at least once each week.
Description: SCP-292 is a three decimeter (.3 meter) diameter steel pipe emerging about 1.2192 meters [exactly four (4) English system feet] vertically from a fifteen (15) meter square flat sheet of steel. While the item is not violent toward humans the biological component will grasp other mammals using tentacles that emerge from inside the body. The mammal is then devoured by being impaled repeatedly by the steel tube. Anything that enters the tube is either dissolved by corrosive acids or (in the case of humans) removed gently by the tentacles before any harm is done.

Addendum: Those with Level 2 Security Clearance should see Incident Report 292-2 (document #292-2).
Addendum: Those with Level 4 Security Clearance should see Dr. ███'s recommendation (document #292-3).
Document #292-1: Origin of anomalous entity
The item was produced at the ███ █████ ███████ in ███ ██████, ████. Steelworkers left the plant at the end of their evening shift with no abnormalities. Plant security footage shows that someone showing traits of [DATA EXPUNGED] broke into the plant followed by an unidentified armed pursuer. Plant records show that someone (presumably either the suspected [DATA EXPUNGED] or the unidentified individual) activated one of the steel presses. Crews returning in the morning found this object at the machine's output point with the machine turned off. Security footage does not show anyone leaving the plant that night.
Document #292-2: Incident Report
SCP-292's tentacles were able to breech a steel door & damage the containment facility sufficiently to escape (dragging the steel sheet along the ground using tentacles). Subject managed to capture a researcher before security arrived. A pen on the researcher's person was used by a tentacle to write a simple message on his labcoat, demanding sustenance. The researcher was not harmed during the incident.
Document #292-3: Status Report for SCP-292 dated █/█/20██
All attempts at destruction of the object/entity have proven fruitless. Object has not shown any violent nature toward humans but refuses to communicate for any reason other than to demand food. Recommend the item be downgraded to Safe/Euclid class, mothballed, and fed regularly. - Dr. ███
