Dog Owners Warned of Tennis Balls Filled With Razor Blades

Now this happened over in the UK, but it can happen anywhere! Especially now that weather is getting better, more people will be taking their dogs to the parks as the sun comes out.

The owner found the ball in a park in Greater Manchester on Friday night, and shared the post on local community Facebook group Stockport Crime Watch.

"This ball containing a new razor blade inside was picked up by my dogs in the reeds adjacent to the Knott car park at the far end of Lyme Park at 6.00 pm 24th May. It has been doctored by someone who evidently has malevolent intentions towards dogs. My puppies carried it back to the car and chewed it up. We found this vicious razor blade inside. The pond life responsible may use poison or there may be more doctored balls in the vicinity. The police and the rangers at Lyme have been informed and have assigned an incident number IML410822. Please let them know of any further developments. Please be vigilant- my dogs just found this old ball set in the reeds hidden for them to find. I even threw it for them! I can’t bear to think of the consequences..."

People have shared their disgust on social media, with many saying it's not the first time that dogs have been 'targeted' in such a way.
