Man Throws Grenade for his Dog to Fetch

Posted on August 19, 2014

A man has been caught throwing a grenade in a game of fetch with his dog, on a beach in Essex, completely unaware he was lobbing a decades-old explosive to his pet.

The man was spotted by an off-duty military explosives expert at Marine Parade in Harwich, casually tossing the unexploded grenade thought to be from the Second World War.

After the bomb expert halted play and set up a 30 yard cordon around the grenade, the police and coastguard were alerted, and it was removed by explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) officers.
