Detroit — Further testing on bones found Sunday in River Rouge Park have revealed the remains came from an animal, according to the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.

“Once we got the bones and accessed them, we were able to tell that they were nonhuman,” spokesman Ryan Bridges said. “We just know that they’re animal. We don’t know which type of animal specifically.”

Bridges said no further testing would be done to determine the type of animal.

The bones were found around 3 p.m. about 100 yards into a wooded area of the park, Officer Jennifer Moreno said.

The remains initially were reported as human after a preliminary examination by the medical examiner on-scene, Moreno said.
