<p>That’s pretty much the whole story. There are no before-and-after shots of the mower, which may have in fact been the tractor shown below. There’s no photo of the no-doubt dumbfounded dude, a gardener, as it happens, in Croatia. There isn’t even an explanation of what the grenade was doing in the yard, save for the statement, from the Zagreb police, that ” someone had thrown the grenade into his garden.>
