Good advice.  We advocate calling the local police or military support  unit
such as the unexploded ordinance group.  They have the equipment to  handle
this and often look forward to providing service to the public and as a
training exercise.  It isn't worth the risk to try and open containers  manually, in
our experience it is safer when in doubt to let the ordinance  trained folks
detonate them in a safe, controlled  environment.
