I found these bones that seem to be in very good shape. They seem real and seem to contain a spine. Anyone have an idea on what this could be from?

Was there any other evidence at the site like feet, beaks, or claws?  It might help distinguish one politician from the other?

Seriously, we need more information if we are going to identify this thing. It looks like it was found near water or floodplain. That key shaped scapula (shoulder blade), if that's what it is, has got to be diagnostic with a hole like that in it. It looks like it had fur so it wasn't a bird. It would be nice to see photos of anything else like feet, claws, teeth, skull that were there. I've looked at all the usual creatures and haven't seen anything like it. It doesn't look like rabbit, hare, groundhog, otter, seal, beaver, or muskrat or deer or your dog. I'm running out of possibilities as to what it could be. Any ideas?
