Chick 2 (April 2008 - November 2008) was kidnapped and brutally murdered by Caspian the dog today. It was a classic case of death by biting. Chick 2's plastic outer shell was cracked exposing the spring mechanism. He died instantly and felt no pain.
Caspian the dog has been declared unfit to stand trial on the charge of first degree murder. He will serve probation from the plastic animal area for an unspecified amount of time. It is not the first time he has exhibited signs of criminal intent. Mama Horse and Hay Ride the dinosaur both bear the scars of previous biting attacks. The Historian and attorney for the accused stated, "Dogs will be dogs. They chew stuff up. It's what they do. Chick 2's owners should have taken care to keep him away from all canine aggressors." Such words do little to comfort the Crafter, Wild Thing, and Sweetie who deny any part in contributing to the tragedy.
The plastic animal family is coping as best they can. Please remember Chick 1 and Chick 3, the survivors of what was a set of triplets, as they will feel the loss more so than the others. Chick 2 is lying in state in the TV cabinet. The funeral will be this afternoon around 2:30pm. will be in the trash can.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like a new plastic animal.
