Odd find...

top bone looks like a left human tibia (bigger of the two bones in the lower leg); not sure on the other two. The lower looks similar enough to the top that it may be the other tibia.

The ends of the long bone do not appear to be human unless something has knawed off part of each ends.If you are curious and want ral answers, turn them over to LE and report the location of the find.
