Canadian police and a “distraught” bystander got off on the wrong foot after a “severed extremity” turned out to be something far less sinister.
The grisly find was made in British Columbia, with the Delta Police Department saying officers went out “on foot” to investigate.
Sure enough, where a passerby told them there was a foot, there was.
Only, it wasn’t human.
It belonged to a mannequin.
“The driver appears quite distraught and states that there is a severed foot roadside by the pump house,” the Force said on Facebook.
“The officer heads to the pump house to investigate and comes upon this.
“Alarming, yes, but luckily it’s just the foot of a mannequin.”
Police are continuing to look for the owner of the extremity, saying there’s a mystery afoot.
