Remains found in northeast Ga. appear to be animal

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - After suspicions that human skeletal remains were found by a crew during survey work in Clarke County, police now say the remains appear to be that of an animal.

Police worked with the Athens-Clarke County Coroner's Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to dig up the area near the place where the bones were recovered Thursday.

Athens-Clarke County police said in a statement late Thursday that the remains will be examined further by an anthropologist to determine the species.
