Police were called out in the early afternoon of July 7 after a bone was reportedly found on the Fundy shore at Hall’s Harbour.  

“The person who found it wasn’t sure what kind of bone it was,” so they put in a call to Kings District RCMP, reported Cons. Blair MacMurtery.  

MacMurtery said the skeletal remains could be from a deer or another large mammal that are often spotted on the beaches.  

“But that doesn’t mean it can’t be human,” he added.  

The bone was collected and subsequently sent to the Medical Examiner’s office in Halifax for analysis.  

“At the end of the day, we need to know more about this bone,” said MacMurtery.
