Bear with us. This story has a happy ending.
It all started one fateful morning with this tweet from newspaper reader (bless him) Sam Scott. Oh noes!

City editor Lauren McGill, who is often at the helm of the Daily Mail’s Twitter account, responded with sympathy and an action plan.
@theonlysamscott Oh no! So sorry about your bear! We have forwarded your message to our circulation director.

Sam seemed pleased by the response but had come to terms with the loss of his porcelain bear.
@charleywest Haha! It's really not a big deal! I was just making a joke! I got it on sale on Kmart!

Enter Kmart, with timely Twitter action of its own.
