Pet dog digs up stick of dynamite

A family dog has dug up what appears to be a stick of dynamite in the backyard of their property, at Haven, near Horsham in western Victoria.

Dynamite dogTiffany Evans says her five-and-a-half month old pup brought the explosive to the back door, just as she was taking her son to school.

Police told her it was a large pyrotechnic or firecracker, but she will not know what it is until the bomb squad removes it.

“Once we thought we’d confirmed that it was a stick of dynamite, we rang the local police and they came out and advised us on what to do,” she said.

“That seems to be it so far. We’re just waiting now for it to be removed.”
