COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A possible grave site discovered in Palmer Park Thursday evening prompted a large police response.

The Colorado Springs Police Department said in a social media post just before 8 p.m. that homicide detectives were on scene to investigate. Initially, police weren't sure if the remains were human or animal.

In an update around 9:20 p.m., police said the remains were those of a domesticated animal. It's not clear if someone was burying a pet or if the animal was disposed of for some other reason.

Police responded to the scene on the east side of the park, near a trail connected to a small parking area, after a witness reportedly saw the remains wrapped in what appeared to be duct tape and a tarp.

  1. Unless the skulls are missing, the coroner must be blind
    a dog or a man….????

    Google the images.
    Maybe its Chupacabra

  2. A possible grave site discovered in Palmer Park Thursday evening prompted a large police response.

    All the cops go running for bones but will not respond for a vehicle theft.

  3. wrap yourself in a tarp with just your bare toes and hair sticking out and lay down at the park.
    Then when all the cops arrive, wait till their hair is standing on edge-jump up and yell “PSYCHE”

  4. Sigh, first little multi colored bags of dog doo left all along the trail, now the pets that leave them behind too?
