Bomb squad blows up suspicious stuffed horse near location of similar 2010 incident.

A suspicious package, described by deputies as a stuffed rocking horse with a black item strapped to it, prompted school lockdowns in the Orlando, Florida area Monday -- the first day of school following the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

The animal was blown up by authorities as a precaution.

The animal was found in the same neighborhood as another suspicious stuffed animal two years ago.

In that incident, it was the first school day after shots were fired at a St. Petersburg High School football game, where no one was hurt.
