Leave No Bear Behind Part 23: A Medley Of Misery

London's toy animals are in peril. Each night, wide-eyed trusting playthings are left to fend for themselves on the mean streets of the capital. Last week we decided to revive our 'Leave No Bear Behind' campaign, to raise awareness of their plight. Our inbox was flooded with numerous photographs of discarded toys. It is really quite upsetting.

A tiger, harshly stuffed into a bucket. It's beyond the pail to treat an endangered species like this. Spotted by Ben in Deptford.

If you've spotted a toy in trouble on the streets of London, email matt@londonist.com with a photo.
