These creepy abandoned stuffed animals were once cherished by a child before being unceremoniously tossed onto the trash heap.    

Lost, Dumped & Abandoned Stuffed Animals

 

1) Fence With Benefits

This poor stuffed dog can still make a licking but by all other metrics it's no longer ticking. It also looks to have lost some of its stuffing, which is never a good thing whether you're a dog or a turkey. (images above and at top via Mike Linksvayer  

 

2) Too Sad, Too Bear

Could this really be “the saddest picture ever”, as stated by the photographer? You gotta admit, the scene is dark in more ways than one. Not that putting a no-longer-wanted stuffed animal out on the curb is evil in and of itself, but did the perpetrator have to pose it so heartstring-plucking evocatively?

3) Pink Thing

Live from the set of John Carpenter's all-stuffed-animals reboot of “The Thing”, it's... goodness gracious, what IS that? According to the photographer, this “weird stuffed animal” was found in an abandoned house. We're guessing its malign presence directly led to the house being abandoned.

4) Duck & Cover

Stuffed animals aren't biodegradable... who knew? The above dumped duck was photographed in 2015, and before that in 2013, and before that in 2012. Though its plush fur looks a little worse for wear, this zombie duck could probably be put back into the arms of a child after a quick wash & dry. Not MY child, but still.

5) The Nightmare AFTER Christmas

The photographer opines the above trashed toy is “a reindeer... maybe?” Well, if it is, then where's the rest of it?? We'd ask the Abominable Snowman but he's got a dentist's appointment today. (image above via Terry Ross)      

 

6) Alley Oops

You gotta love stuffed animals: they never lose their grin no matter what the situation might be. In this case, it's being abandoned in a London back alley. Still, this canine Care Bear wannabe manages to smile onward though that odd comb-over ear's gotta hurt. (image above via Alan Stanton     

 

7) Where Wolf?

Somebody set a stuffed toy wolf in the window of an abandoned, “possibly burned at some point” aluminum trailer filled with couches, for some reason. We'd speculate but we have other things to think about... like, ANY other thing. (image above via Tom Burke)        

 

8) That Sinking Feeling

Here's a stuffed dog's head in a trash dump near the Golden Gate Bridge. The horrifying question is... is it just a head, or is an entire stuffed animal buried in trash with only its head above the surface? This is one case where there's no lesser of two evils; both are equally evil. (image above via Mike Linksvayer)         

 

9) Chimp Thrills

Returning animals to the wild – awesome. Returning stuffed animals to the wild – awful. At least whomever it was who decided an artificial monkey was better off in a real forest took care to place the toy in a tree, where it will probably remain until its other eye falls off.

10) Eclectic Chair

It's the La-Z-Boy of misfit toys, featuring a bald-headed baby doll, a mildewed puppy, and Mickey Mouse with a skin condition. The toxic trio does look comfortable though we'd prefer to sit in any other chair – even one wired to the mains. (image above via John Graham)
