(Newser) – Lucky the beagle brought home something that horrified his owner but may be a lucky break for homicide detectives. The pooch brought a human foot and attached leg bone back to his mistress in southern California's Newberry Springs. She called police, who found more body parts along a stretch of highway in the Mojave Desert. Lucky, she says, has brought home plenty of animals before—but no body parts. "It didn’t seem like it was real. It was freaky, scary, and I was in shock,” she tells CBS. Investigators plan to conduct DNA tests on the remains.

What was her dog doing out alone on a stretch of highway in the desert? I realize there most likely is not a great deal of traffic there the desert???? To me this lady does not qualify for the 'pet owner of the year' award.

exactly how many times has Lucky visited this stretch of highway and brought things home before? Lucky is damn lucky he isn't one of those exploded detached meat pieces by now! BAD owners.
