BERLIN – A anxious resident in Germany alerted police to what he thought was a World War II bomb in his backyard. Officers rushed over — and located a very giant zucchini.
Police have been summoned to the scene in Bretten, close to the southwestern metropolis of Karlsruhe, on Thursday morning by an 81-year-old man.
They mentioned in a press release Friday that officers decided “the object, which really did look very like a bomb” was really an almost 16-inch zucchini.
The offending vegetable, which was very darkish in coloration, weighed about 11 kilos. Police imagine somebody threw it over a hedge into the backyard.
Unexploded wartime bombs are unearthed continuously throughout development work in Germany, usually forcing authorities to evacuate tens of 1000’s of residents whereas they’re defused.
