Here's the plethora of items that were in the grass.

The dog's ball.


A giant mushroom.


A bone.


Ick. Care to speculate about what animal this came from? (Thanks, dog.)

My guess would be a raccoon spine/rib cage. Maybe opossum.

Bears are opportunistic omnivores. They will eat pretty much anything. Although, most of the meat that they eat is carrion. They can kill, but it isn't common.

It could have died from any number of things. Coyote, fox, old age, disease, bear, etc. There are a ton of things that could have killed it. I'd bet your dog dragged it back to your yard if you let it out without a leash.

The dog definitely dragged it back. Usually he finds bones that have been picked clean by the insects. This is the first time he's found something with gunk on it. And it stunk to high heaven.

Two or three mights/early mornings ago, we heard a big racket, but it sounded like two or three birds fighting. Might have been whatever this is.

Maybe the dog found Cuomo's spine.

If you start running high fever, sweats, the runs, bleeding, etc, you'll know where the ebola came from. Now go wash your hands in some sulfuric acid.

Mowing, not my favorite job. I probably would have ground it up and kept going, I call it making top soil.:)
