Let's take a minute to be grateful to our our men and women in blue that deal with things like this so that we don't have to.

In a recent Facebook post, the Orono Police Department describe a recent incident in which they had to deal with something they never did before.

In the process of clearing an apartment which was thought to be vacant, they discovered THIS at the bottom of the stairs.

Officer Wentworth admitted to being startled slightly by the discovery.

Better him than me!!
