Some 53 bags of human remains have been discovered since late October in a makeshift grave in the Mexican city of Irapuato, an excavation that began after locals reported seeing a dog walking around with a human hand in its mouth.

Irapuato is in Guanajuato, which has the highest murder rate of any of Mexico’s 32 states. The violence stems primarily from a years-long war between the Jalisco cartel and the Sinaloa cartel.

Bibiana Mendoza, 32, told Agence France-Presse that she came to Irapuato looking for her brother after hearing reports about the dog carrying a human hand.

“While people from all over the world were celebrating the Cervantino party, we were digging up bodies, and at the same time I thought it was pointless because they were burying more people in other places,” Mendoza told the news outlet.
