Pet rabbits have dug up the remains of at least three people dating back to the 19th century in a garden in Amersfoort.
Police were called on Monday night when the children of the family thought they saw bones in a hole dug by their pet rabbits. Police then spent all night uncovering more bones, including a skull, dating back to between 1880 and 1900.
The find and subsequent police search caused much excitement in the neigbourhood, the AD said. ‘We soon heard they had found a skull with a jaw bone attached. The teeth did not have fillings,’ a neighbour who claimed to have seen police photos told the paper.
The Dutch forensic institute NFI will now investigate how the remains of the three people ended up in the garden.
