Bone hunting 4/6

The other weekend my friend wanted to go bone hunting with me and I told him that we should go across the street where Hannah was in case I found her skull or arm or leg. The street where Hannah was hit is surrounded by forest- no houses. We went and the first thing we found (I saw it) was a large pelvis and when we walked over there we found a lot of bones that went with it. It was a male deer, old and somewhat buried. Here’s what the spine looked like in the ground:

We tried to find a skull but there was none around and we couldn’t find the top of the spine just the thoracic and lumbar region. I have to many bones I gave the half deer to my friend. He’s moving soon so he didn’t want to take it home, even though the whole reason we came into the forest was because he wanted bones! So we left it in a pile. I started to put the spine together but I could only find the lumbar region:

We found a lot of bones for the deer and it was pretty cool. I usually always find something when I go bone hunting, and I did also find some of Hannah’s other hind leg!! I didn’t get a picture of it though because my gloves were dirty and I didn’t want my phone to get all gross. But where I found Hannah’s leg I was confused because there was like filling from like a couch. It was weird and then I saw this which was even weirder

I took my glove off because I wanted a picture of it. It looks like a tiny house area, there’s a vase, 2 chairs, a table, and not in the picture I saw something that looked like a door. The animals had ripped the stuffing from the chair and that’s what all that yellow stuff is. Leah and I may go back into the forest this weekend and hopefully Hannah’s skull will be found!
