BLANCHARD, Okla. (AP) _ Authorities say bones found near Blanchard last week by a hunter are from an animal and are not human.

McClain County Sheriff Don Hewett says the bones appear to be part of an arm from the elbow to the wrist and fingers.

But Rob Deaton with the state medical examiner's office says the bones are not human although officials are not yet sure what animal they came from.

The bones were found last Thursday in a rural area by a hunter gathering animal traps.
