Man Fears Someone Is Hitting Flaming Golf Balls Into His Yard

A Perth resident has claimed 'a d**khead' is setting fire to golf balls and hitting them into his backyard, as his suburb struggles to deal with the threat of bushfires.

Baldivis resident Nick Davidson shared an image of three melted golf balls on Facebook, fearing "someone lit them on fire and hit them" into his yard.

“There’s a d**khead hitting golf balls that are on fire into dry properties,” Davidson claimed.

“We are on a big dry block, Baldivis area. Found three already. Check your property regularly people.”

Some people were quick to question whether the golf balls had been on Davidson's property before a previous fire. However, Davidson wrote he did not believe this was the case.

Davidson did not wish to comment on the matter further when contacted by 10 daily.

WA police and the Department of Emergency Services have also been approached for comment.
