I saw this story earlier. The source is known to be a sensationalist newspaper and it is likely exaggerated, but still.
For those who don’t want to read the link, a couple living in Leeds, UK found a “bullet” in their garden pond and called the police. The police searched the pond and found 7500 more rounds. Despite the house being thoroughly searched and no more being found, they say that they don’t want to live there any more.
The article also says that most of the rounds were “2.2mm rifle rounds” which is of course very poor journalism.
Here are a few quotes from the article:
[i]Mr Tipping said: 'It’s really unnerved us. I’m terrified that next time I’m mowing the lawn I’ll run over a bullet that hasn’t been found yet. One of us could be seriously hurt.
'We have friends with young children who could have put one of the bullets in their mouth, or one of our cats could have got hold of one - it doesn’t bear thinking about.
'We were planning to be in this house for years - now we want to move out as soon as we can.
‘It’s sad because we love this house and have spent time and effort making it a home. And somebody somewhere has ruined that. I don’t want to stay in a house where that kind of thing has been found in the garden. I’m gutted.’
Mr Tipping added: ‘Of course for our family and friends this is a great story, but for us, it’s ruined our home.’
This is the way people in this country have been coditioned to react when firearms or ammunition are involved. However, the commenters at the bottom of the page seem to have more sense.
