Oh, I am sure that was happening. It seems like there are more and more of those people around all the time. So sad and so much makes me angry.

Some people were making the balls to explode on purpose. Sick!

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

II saw something on these (maybe TV around the 4th). People use the tennis balls to make fireworks. Then when they don't go off, the people just throw them aside as duds. When someone or an animal picks them up they go off. I would still definitely keep away from them.

It's sad that some people are that twisted. Thanks for posting this Jeanne!

Funny, the dogs we have now, seldom play with a ball. Sarge used to play ball with Huck at Huck's house, but not here. I never did figure that out lol. Happy Canada Day!

Thanks for sharing this Jeanne!

Some people are just plain WACKOS!!! Bet they also beat up on women, children and animals.....

Thankfully I haven't heard of anything like this happening in Canada, but once it's on the internet you just know some other idiots will copy pr even worse even increase the danger part of the scheme....

Makes me extra glad that my guys have absolutely zero idea what a tennis ball is!!!

I'm glad I read about those. Even though Cassie doesn't play with anything, I might have tossed the stray one in my yard toward her this morning and I would not have liked if something had happened with it.

Thank you, Jeanne. I know there are a lot of dogs that will find those around. I am glad now that Cassie doesn't play with balls out in the yard.
