A woman from Houston, Texas was left stunned when she realised that a teddy bear she received during a secret santa exchange contained human remains.

The woman, Rakhi Desai, initially did not suspect anything strange when she received the soft toy that a friend had picked up at an estate sale.

It was only when she googled the name of the organisation stitched on the bear’s foot that she realised the bear was filled with the ashes of someone who had been cremated. The organisation, Neptune Society, is a cremation service provider in this US.

Rakhi told ABC: “It seems to be that this bear is very special to somebody and belongs in somebody’s family.” She added that she hopes to reunite the bear with its original owner but all her efforts to this end so far have been fruitless.

She said: “Miracles happen every day. So, if there’s a positive end to this story, that would be great.”
