UPDATE: No Cause For Alarm After Bones Found In Traverse City; They're From A Turkey

TRAVERSE CITY (WWJ/AP) - Police say there's no cause for alarm after an excavating crew unearthed bones while digging for a construction project at a home in downtown Traverse City.

Traverse City police Sgt. Matt Richmond says the bones discovered on Tuesday during work on an addition to a home weren't human. He told The Traverse City Record-Eagle that the bones were from a turkey.

Richmond says a person who unearthed the bones sent a photo to a friend and turned them over to police.
