An Alabama woman thought the discarded teddy bear she picked up from a pile of garbage would make a good dog toy. What she found inside the bear was startling, she said.

Vicky Wise said she picked up the bear in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. After look at the bear she found a heart-shaped box inside a pouch in the bear, she told WHNT-TV.

“It was mind-blowing,” she told the TV station. “I just couldn’t believe I found something like that in a trash bin. It was startling.”

Wise found the name “Barry Freed” on the back of the box and a date, May 20, 2020.

Wise is hoping to locate the person who owned the bear.
