PORTLAND, Ore. — A bomb hidden in a tennis ball exploded Saturday, killing a dog.
A Portland man was walking his friend’s dog when he found a tennis ball wrapped in tape next to the sidewalk.
He and the dog played fetch with the ball for about 30 minutes, when the toy ball exploded in the animal’s mouth, said Henry Groepper of the Portland Police Bureau.
"It must have been pressure sensitive," Groepper said.
The chocolate Labrador had to be euthanized at the scene.
The dog’s body was sent to a lab for testing to determine the type of explosive used.
The recalled soups include:
The Tasty Classics soups were sold in stores across the Midwest and at Canned Foods Grocery Outlets stores in California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.
The Wegmans and Stop & Shop soups were sold in East Coast stores. The Baron soups were sold nationwide at various grocery stores.
