Loaded Cannon Found in Central Park (VIDEO)

British naval ship, HMS Hussar, circa 1763

I am guessing Mayor Bloomberg wasn’t too happy about this one.

Conservation workers in New York City discovered a 200 year old cannon still loaded in Central Park this past Friday.  The cannon which was once aboard British warship HMS Hussar was gifted to city and was placed in shed storage in 1996 after being on display in the park for decades.  The cannons were removed last week for rust removal when the discovery was found.  NYPD stated that the gunpowder was still active.
