"We were beginning to count up the eggs at the end of the hunt and I saw a boy of three standing on an object," Stuart Moffatt, who was attending the hunt with his three children, told the Daily Mail.
"It was brown and about four inches high. It looked like an Easter egg, but it was a hand grenade.
