Horse Killed by Bowling Ball Cannon

Bowling Ball

Authorities are charging Ricky Thorne of Spring Valley, Wis. with negligent handling of a weapon and recklessly endangering safety.  Thorne and his brother fired a total of 10 bowling balls and 10 bowling pins from their homemade bowling ball cannon on July 4th.  One of those bowling balls crashed through the roof of their neighbor’s barn.  Lisa Kroll felt her house shaking but figured they were just setting off big firecrackers.  The next morning when she went to feed her horses, she found bowling balls and bowling pins littering her property.  She also found a hole in the roof of her barn.

When Kroll went to her outdoor pens, she found her 10 month old foal laying dead with a head injury consistent with the impact from flying balls.
