Loaded Rocket Launcher Found on Canadian Highway

(User Submitted) – A tree pruner clearing brush near a highway on Canada's Vancouver Island made a surprising discovery—a loaded rocket launcher sitting beside the road, covered in moss. “I cleared it away and that's when I read the writing. It said: To fire, aim, pull pin and press trigger," he said. “Right then, just by looking at it I kind of had a pretty good idea what it was.”

It is not known if the launcher is part of the Canadian military's arsenal, or how it came to be abandoned in the brush close to a busy highway. Police think it's been there for six months or more. A search by police dogs did not turn up any further weapons. Read the full article from the Canadian Press.
