Whilst things may not go bump in the night, they certainly caused a stir early this morning.

Police drove out to a farm in Skogmo after receiving calls from the public about a succession of loud bangs.

The sounds were found to be coming from a carrot field, according to NTB.

“A gas canister was standing at the edge of the woods connected to what we call was a cannon,” Stig Fredriksen, head of operations tells Trønder-Avisa.

He goes on to say that the farmer was using it to keep the deer off his carrots.

Looks like Elmer Fudd may have been outclassed.
