Fear Of Seals – Man Sets Off Bomb To Scare Them Away

Didn’t he think he was safe from seals two miles from the ocean?

The small bomb, usually used to scare off seals, went off near a hardware store and a gas station on Forest Avenue near Forest Hill Boulevard at 9 p.m. An officer in the area heard a loud bang. A resident told him a man had lit and thrown an explosive device near a gas station.

Michael Harley Henderson, a 28-year-old Pacific Grove resident, was located at a nearby liquor store and admitted to detonating the “seal bomb” and throwing a second unlit bomb into a trash can. The small cylinder-shaped bombs are about 3 inches long, police said.
