Kent, Washington: There is something majorly wrong with people and with the 4th of July around the corner, police are telling dog owners to be careful if they see a tennis ball laying around outside.
A person or persons is placing tennis ball bombs with a tiny explosive firecracker inside.
A tennis ball bomb is not totally new. In February, a local man found the homemade tennis ball device at Everett’s Silver Lake Park. Reports say no one was hurt.
The Kent Police Department held a community meeting to inform their community about the explosives, “A tennis ball bomb is very easy to identify. It is a real tennis ball that has some sort of fuse sticking out of it. Here is a picture of one. The tennis ball could also be completely wrapped in duct tape with a fuse sticking out.”
