WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say skeletal remains that were found in Williamsburg County belong to animals. 

Officials with the Williamsburg County Sheriff's Office say the remains, which were found on Monday, were sent to MUSC, and authorities were able to make the species type identification of the remains. 

According to authorities, the remains were deer legs and bobcat vertebrae.

The remains were discovered off S-45-574/McCants Road in the Earls area of Williamsburg County. 

A beaver dam was being cleared from a swamp area when a black plastic tarp was discovered. The sheriff's office says inside the black tarp were skeletal remains along with other debris. 

WCSO officials say it is unknown why the remains were in the tarp as it has been determined that there was no other criminal acts involved; the sheriff's office says the investigation has been concluded. 

The investigation was worked jointly by Williamsburg County Sheriff's Office, Williamsburg County Coroner's Office, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Williamsburg County Search and Rescue, and CUE Center.
