    Budding paleontologist

He stated he often smells one of his neighbors cooking ribs and believes that the bones are being thrown over the fence. The man is concerned they will harm his dog. Officer photographed the bones and checked out the fence line, and contacted the neighbor who does the cooking. The neighbor denied having thrown the bones over the fence line.
