Bones Found At Rosemont Construction Site, Workers Call Police

MONTREAL - Montreal police are trying to figure out if bones discovered during a renovation project are those of a family pet or a crime victim.

Const. Danny Richer says investigators can't immediately tell if the bones are animal or human.

Experts from the coroner's office and the provincial crime lab have been called in to help.

Construction workers digging in the back of a private residence in the city's Rosemont district found the bones late this morning and called police.

Police are doing further digs to determine if there are more bones on the property.
