Thanks to the sharp nose of a husky dog --  human and animal skeletal remains were found in the backyard of a Yuba City home.

The Yuba City Police Department says a man who was renting the home in the 1600 block of Nadean Drive says his dog found the remains after "obsessively digging" at the spot.

Yuba City police are investigating and say anthropologists from California State University Chico will examine the remains and provide police with a report next week.
