Garie Bowman recently made a disturbing discovery near his home in Baltimore, Maryland. According to Thursday’s WBALTV 11 News, on the other side of his fence, in the backyard of a neighbor who died nearly two years ago, were the remains of a dog who curled up in her dog house and died. Judging by the carcass, the dog died quite some time ago.
Bowman remembered the dog, whose name was Eleanor – he recalled her barking and then one day, the barking stopped. He assumed that the pit bull had been given away after her owner, George, passed away – it turns out that she was apparently forgotten in her back yard.
Reporters with WBALTV made contact with the deceased man’s family (who still lives at the house where Eleanor’s remains were found), they claim that Eleanor ran away back in 2015 and they never saw her again. Somehow, they apparently missed her body in their own back yard.
