Boys find five-toed foot while exploring in the woods; police send it to examiner
LAKEVILLE (MA) — Call it the case of the elusive big foot.
Authorities are trying to determine what two young boys found when they were exploring in the woods of Lakeville.
On March 29, Sgt. Steven Leanues picked up what appears to be a decomposed foot that the boys found in the woods off Pantheon Road.
Police Chief Frank Alvilhiera sent it to the medical examiner, who determined it is not human, although it appears to have five toes.
But what is it?
Alvilhiera said it might be a bear paw or perhaps it belonged to a different animal, although it appears to be human.
Until the medical examiner does further testing, its identity remains uncertain.
“It will take some time before we hear any official results,” Alvilhiera said.
In other words, big foot remains a mystery.
Cryptomundian and resident skeptic Ben Radford say:
Tests are still being conducted, but the strange find has locals asking: What has five toes and looks like a foot — but isn’t? Maybe Bigfoot, but more likely a bear. Strange as it may seem, this is not the first time that animal bones have been mistaken for human remains.Ben Radford
Eerily similar to “The Hand of Unknown Origin“, me thinks…
