Pulled out of cans over the years you’ve dug?
I just pulled these three tabs out of this Hamms.

Back in the 1970's I was cleaning cans and had a live mouse come out of a tab top can

Sweet. Wonder if they were using it as a noise maker before tossing it or if it somehow worked it’s way in there from mud etc

I once got an RC Cola can in the mail (the ones with the baseball players on the side) and there was something weird looking sticking out of the top. I was able to figure out it was the foot of a dead mouse …

Ants, bugs, single & multiple pull tabs for sure. Bullets and even a big Canco church key can opener. You just never know I guess...
Thanks. Dave

There have been times when I'm cleaning a mud or dirt filled can, I wash all the dirt out and there's this rock that seems just to big to have gotten into the church key or tab hole in the can.
I've also found a few living things in cans.

Didn’t physically “pull” it out, but back in the early ‘80’s I was shaking out a 16oz Old German tab from Eastern brewing trying to empty it of what I thought was just mud. After several vigorous shakes, a foot long grass snake came slithering out with probably the worst headache of his life!

I bought a collection once and noticed this 20 Grand Ale metallic pull tab was kind of heavy. I saw something in there and after getting a flashlight, discovered it was a pair of women's panties stuffed in there. No telling the story behind that!
