This is a case where I would recommend dunking in salt water. Mix 4 tablespoons of salt in enough water to cover the pack and let it stand for a week outside, than toss it.

The best discharge method is to use a resistance as the salt water method is not a sure fire discharge method, sometimes the internal tabs corrode off leaving a pack that reads 0V but is still charged to some degree.
