Grisly find was bones of a dog
THERE’S no way to tell if a dog was dead or alive when it was dumped off a bridge and into a creek bed earlier this month.
The bones were hidden within a cardboard box and covered with a hessian bag and found below Macks Bridge outside of Monto.
Acting Sergeant Martin Darby was forced to go swimming to retrieve the grisly find and see what was inside.
“There were about 20 bones and I spilt them everywhere,” Sgt Darby said.
“(I) had to get completely wet to retrieve them all.
“They really stunk, it was horrible.”
The bones were then sent to a police bone specialist for identification.
However, there is no way to tell if the dog was dead or alive when it was sent to the creek bed.
Sgt Darby encouraged people to continue to phone police on 4166 1211 if they find anything suspicious.
