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!


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.

That sounds like either some kind of messed up mafia warning or there's an evil witch in your neiborhood that doesn't like you.

Well that's an interesting suprise :D Reminded me of a similar case that happened here. Once there was a corpse of a swan on our balcony, because our dog found it in a forest... That was.. pretty interesting too :D
