    'A large bird-like creature has been spotted minutes after Elmo was found on the street. According to some witnessess, the bird was yellow, and very feathery. SesameStreet does not wish to comment on anything'

    Just think - a few years ago, people would have been fighting each other in the street to get to him.

    Poor Elmo, his blue haired sister will be crushed, no pun intended.

    Update: he was still there this morning, but had managed to drag himself across the road. Realising he wasn't actually dead, I have rescued him and brought him with me to work at the hospital.

    Updates on his condition and progress soon..

    Update 2: he is now all red and fluffy and clean, and I've stuck his eyes back together...

    Next will be the attempt to regain his full vision using black Pentel to colour in the chewed bits of eyeball..

    Who needs Holby City?

    (Still to find a suitable donor leg though...)

    It is certainly heart warming to know that there are still some true Good Samaritans out there willing to take in, and heal the untickled, uninsured and downtrodden muppets among us.
    The fact still remains that thousands of orphaned Elmos are euthanized every day in this country...
    So please remember folks...
    ALWAYS spay or newter your Elmo
    (no matter how much they whine about it)

    tragic.
    but maybe he will feel at home in color on grey.

    see first comment....

    the song, from sesame st., of course, really goes:

    "da-da, da-da
    da-da, da-da
    elmo's song"

    just ask any pbs-watching toddler here in the states!

    Maybe it was in the aftermath of this that you found him...
