A bone found in the Bainville area in northeastern Montana had some people wondering if it was human - but Roosevelt County Sheriff Jason Frederick put those concerns to rest.
Frederick said in a Facebook post that a deputy responded to a report on Oct. 7 of a "possible human bone" that a dog brought home.
The deputy recovered the bone and detailed photos were sent to the state crime lab.
Meanwhile, Frederick reported that the had been seeing posts on Facebook that a human bone had been found.
Once the state lab analyzed the bone, they determined it was a tibia from an elk - not human.
