A man remodeling a vacant house made an eerie discovery beneath the floorboards: bones.

But the bones turned out to be bovine, not human.

Deputies with the Newton County Sheriff’s Department were called to a house in Granby on Sunday night to investigate the discovery of possible human remains.

This morning, the bones — a pelvis and some leg bones — were sent to a veterinarian for further examination to determine their origin.

“He said at first they looked like animal bones to him,” Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland said. “But there was some doubt, so an officer came out and examined them.”

The bones were cut up and could not immediately be recognized as cattle bones, the sheriff said.
