rating: +162+x

Moved to Site-19 1993. Origin is as of yet unknown. It is constructed from concrete and rebar with traces of Krylon brand spray paint. SCP-173 is animate and extremely hostile.

Item #: SCP-173

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-173 is to be kept in a modified containment chamber at Site-91. Said chamber is to be equipped with a sprinkler system. The sprinkler system is to be activated fortnightly to dispose of waste materials formed in the chamber. If personnel are required to enter SCP-173's chamber, at least 3 personnel are to be present. At least 1 of those individuals must maintain direct visual contact with SCP-173 at all times while inside the chamber.

Description: SCP-173 is a statue constructed of concrete and reinforcing steel with traces of spray paint. It is animate, although it may only move when no individual observes it visually. When animate, SCP-173 tends to attack surrounding individuals in the vicinity. Common methods of attack include strangulation or snapping one's neck.

About once per day, waste materials are spontaneously generated around SCP-173's vicinity. Chemical analysis of waste materials indicates that they are formed from a combination of faeces and blood. The mechanism in which SCP-173 generates waste materials is unknown.

SCP-173 was brought into Site-91 on ██/██/2008 CE by Foundation agents. Information of SCP-173 prior to containment by the Foundation is unknown.


Addendum 173-746: On 04/10/2045 CE, SCP-173 and other SCP objects were transferred from Site-91 to [REDACTED]. See Document 91/04-10-2045 for more information.

James, what's with you spamming me with SMSes. Don't you have work to do, Mr site director?

Not since most of the skips were transferred out. The staff and I at 91 are dying of boredom here.

Let me guess, the Multi-U came along.


Shaq, are you sure you're not anomalous?

LOL! Call it a woman's intuition.

But jokes aside, my friends from sites 17 and 754 had told me about the Multi-U clearing skips from those sites. They'll even visit my site next week, I think.

Is everything gonna be alright? There're rumours going on in my site's lounge and cafeteria, that some of us may be laid off.

I don't think so. I hear nothing of the sort from my side.

I will check with the other directors or the O5s and get back to you.


But since we're on the topic, you have any idea why it's happening?


You don't know or you can't tell me?

I'm not even cleared for info on where they're heading to. Just know the transfer is done and that's that.

So much for your Level 4 clearance, huh?

But look at the bright side, things will be less lethal in this industry for now.
