Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like.


I'm not really positive what normal protocol is for finding skeletal remains on your property. I can't say I've ever sat down on a rainy day and been like.. "Hm.. kind of humid today. I should probably read up on what to do in event of bones showing up on my front lawn."

And you know, it wouldn't even be a HUGE issue if it was, say, a femur. Even an ulna! I'd just assume a cartoon dog moved in next door and, at most, I'd have to chide him for his slovenly habits. (After the inevitable half hour of wacky hijinx, of course.)

But no. It's a spine. Or at least, part of a spine. A particularly large hunk of spine. HOW DOES SOMEONE MISPLACE THAT. Especially so neatly detached from everything else.

Actually, it's occurring to me, I should probably take a picture of this, because I can already feel the wave of 'pix or it didn't happen' responses. And you are entirely in the right to ask this. I'm sending Zombiesmile out now to snap a photo and I'll add it in here later.

That's all, really. I have nothing important to say. Just. Yeah. Hm!




EDIT:
IT'SASPIIIIIINE

It's a spine! Doing spiney things.

I know this was a couple pf years ago but funnily enough the same damn thing happened to me. I was getting ready to do some yard work and I opened the front door to find our family dog gnawing on this meaty, bloody spine. My first reaction was  O_O holy crap my dog ate someone lol After sanity caught up with me I realized it was probably a deer spine because hunting was common where I lived.

On a canoe trip, I was walking toward the river and there was a snow white spine laying in the grass. Most likely, it was a deer, but it was something I had never seen before.

Once my grandpa took me and my brother to the beach, and about 10 minutes after we got into the water, my brother went up to the shore and started screaming. So I ran up next to him (he's only eight by the way) and you'll never guess what we saw.

Ahh it's probs just an animal, I live in a place where there's heaps of dingos and crocs and possums. The dingos and crocs are VERY dangerous when it comes to their prey. I'd still suggest getting someone to look at it for a peace of mind. It's quite big so I don't think it'd be very appropriate to ignore it without telling the cops or your landlord.

Take a file to it, see if its a medical replica made of plaster or something, that's what I'd do. I'd totally prank my neigbors like this if I found a skeleton some doctor or school science lab threw out. ...actually, I think I'm gonna ask the local schools what they do with theirs now :plotting:
