highland horse burial

Another interesting example of human/non-human animal relationships: The BBC is reporting on a horse burial found in the Scottish highlands, dating to the 1750s. Nothing is known about why this horse was buried in this place or in this way. It does not appear to have been butchered or used to make glue.

Someone's beloved pet? An honorable war veteran? Hidden evidence of a crime? Intriguing, indeed.
