Dog brings home human leg

Bill Flowers' dog Liberty showed up at his house last week with a human leg - from a complete set of toes to almost the hip.

Flowers told CNN affiliate KOMO-TV he thought about calling the police.

Then he buried the leg in the back yard of his home on the Nisqually Indian Reservation in western Washington.

"I'm 93 years old," he said. "I didn't want to have to go to the pen for something I didn't do."

    Well, I am nowhere near 93, but if my dog brought home a human leg, I would definitely not bury it in the back yard; we have raccoons. That would be the gift that kept on giving.
    That, and I own a chihuahua and a pug. If it's not served up in a bowl, forget it.

    That was very rude of that dog. It left that person without a leg to stand on.

    A little old lady who broke her leg had to have a plaster cast on for several months, but at last the time came for the doctor to take it off.

    'Can I go up the stairs again?' she asked excitedly.

    'Yes, of course,' said the doctor.

    'Oh good!' said the little old lady. 'I've had such trouble shinning up and down the drainpipe.'

    Bobcat, you do have one for every occasion. You do keep this lady laughing. JIF be patient with your phone and don't throw it in the Hudson. This is creepy with a dog bringing a human leg home.

    Even for Christmas, not one dog of mine ever fetched anything that nice. My female Doberman bright me a baby rabbit one day and lovingly put it on the ground.

      I have a Pug and a Chihuahua. They may fetch some serious cash, as they're both AKC.

    Anyone else see Wild at Heart, the scene with the one guy whose arm was just lost, and his buddy is saying "don't worry they can re-attach it" then a dog runs up and grabs it?
