A dog in Plantation, FL caused quite a stir when a routine digging session turned up an extraordinary find.

Authorities have confirmed that the dog unearthed an old military device that appeared to be a bomb, leading to the closure of three city blocks in Plantation near the area of 870 SW 49 Terrace while the Broward Sheriff’s Office bomb squad was called in.

The device was eventually determined to be inert, and was contained and removed from the scene. Officials say they plan to inspect the military munition in an attempt to determine how old it is and how it came to be buried in a residential yard.
