Dog retrieves human remains

YUBA CITY, California (KCRA) – A dog digging “obsessively” in its Yuba City, California backyard tipped off its owner to a number of unusual items, including doll fragments and a ceramic pot, along with human and animal skeletal remains, police said Thursday.

A tenant at the home told officers the dog, a 4-year-old Husky named Skye, had been digging in a specific area, so he went out to investigate.

“She never digs in the grass, but that one spot, she wouldn’t leave it alone,” said Aaron Kind, who rents the house.

Kind and his roommates grew curious, so they followed Skye’s lead.

“When we pulled out the head of the doll, it was very creepy looking,” Kind said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
