WARNER ROBINS -- Jennifer Prine was relieved to learn Wednesday that the skeletal remains she found in her backyard a few days earlier were not of human origin.
Prine, 29, who moved into the Margaret Drive home about four months ago with her fiance, said she discovered a large bone when putting up an above-ground pool. Prine said she initially dismissed the finding as the bone of a dog that perhaps had been buried in the backyard.
But when she showed the bone to a girlfriend a couple of days later and her friend thought it odd, Prine said her mind started working and she decided she should notify authorities.
Houston County sheriffs Capt. Robert Clark said the bone retrieved from the yard by a sheriffs deputy late Wednesday afternoon has been tested by the countys medical examiner and ruled not of human origin. Clark did not know what type of animal the bone was from.
That makes me feel a lot better, Prine said.
