A MED­I­CAL in­ci­dent of the vet­eri­nar­ian kind has seen a whop­ping 25 ten­nis balls re­moved from the stom­ach of a dog.

The seven-year-old dober­man from Sunderland in the UK, named Stella, was taken to the vet when her owner no­ticed she was not eat­ing with her char­ac­ter­is­tic ap­petite.

An op­er­a­tion en­sued and the sur­geon found her stom­ach con­tained enough balls for a ten­nis tour­na­ment.

Most had been chewed, but amaz­ingly one had even been swal­lowed whole.

Stella’s owner said she was re­cov­er­ing well, adding “she’s bounced back quite quickly”.

EMER­GENCY work­ers evac­u­ated a school in the USA last week, af­ter a strange smell led to haz­mat crews be­ing called.

Stu­dents and teach­ers at the Cristo Rey Je­suit High School re­ported the un­usual odour, and in a “bet­ter safe than sorry” ap­proach is­sued an alert.

Af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion the crews dis­cov­ered that the source of the smell was in fact a “pump­kin spice” flavoured air fresh­ener which had been placed near an air con­di­tion­ing in­take.

Pump­kin Spice is a pop­u­lar fra­grance around this time of year in the lead-up to Hal­loween.
