My husband and I were digging in our back yard when we found these bones. We stopped before we found a skull. They're fairly large and you can see that some of the longer ones were cut. There is a 12 inch ruler for size reference. Can you tell me what they are?
There are various ankle bones and some 'long bones' which have been cleanly cut with a saw. This looks like a collection of 'joints' which you could buy in a butcher to give to your dog to chew on. The size is consistent with Cow.
Thank you John. There were some ribs and stuff too, but mostly I had no idea what I was looking at. Maybe the remains of a slaughter? We've owned the house for 15 years and would never have found them if we hadn't needed a grave for a cat. My son will be disappointed to find out they're something as mundane as cow!
