Grisly find was bones of a dog

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
