Last Monday, February 16, 2009, an unidentified body was found in the Big Black River near U.S. 80, outside of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
It was believed to be human (in conjunction with the search for a missing man). But then, as the autopsy on the body began on February 17th, it was determined it was not human. The Vicksburg Post reported it was an “unidentified animal.”
The finding was announced by the Mississippi State Crime Lab in Jackson, but they didn’t mention what kind of animal it was.
“It is not human,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. “I repeat, it is not human.”
Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey, standing in for the Hinds coroner, had said immediately on February 16th that he could identify nothing from the remains.
The body was found by a father and son looking through scopes on rifles on U.S. 80 just east of Warren-Hinds county line at about 3 pm on the afternoon of February 16.

In reading the full article, it mentions someone from the Vicksburg paper says it's a badly decomposed black bear. I guess we won't know exactly what it was until there's an update.

You can guarantee we'll be told its a bear, regardless of what it is.
