What would you do if you were working in your back yard doing some yard work and digging in the earth and you came across something wild. Like a frickin' grenade?

Well, that's exactly what happened to one Maine resident on Monday evening.

According to WGME 13, a resident in Lisbon, Maine called authorities at about 6:30 Monday evening after digging up what appeared to be an old grenade.

WGME says that the Lisbon Fire and Police departments kept folks away from the scene while they investigated because they were unsure whether or not the unearthed grenade was live or not.

The news station said that the Maine State Police Bomb Squad was called to the scene to investigate.

WGME also reported that the grenade that had been found was badly corroded and that officials on the scene said that it looked fairly vintage and that it had been in the ground for quite some time.
