A human foot washed up with a sock and shoe attached is the 13th such discovery on a British Columbia coastline.
Police say a man was out for walk on the beach in Jordan River on Vancouver Island when his dog found the foot with part of the leg attached this month.
The body part was seized and the area searched.
The investigation has been turned over to the BC Coroners Service.
Andy Watson, a spokesman for the BC Coroners Service, said foul play is not expected.
He said: ‘Our early analysis suggests these are human remains and we will do further investigation and testing.’
Watson explained that the foot is the 13th to wash up on BC’s coastline since 2007 and eight of the feet have been identified as belonging to six people. He says none of them died by foul play.
Authorities said they are trying to identify who the foot belonged to by looking at any possible matches to missing persons cases.
The reason why so many dismembered feet are washing up along the shore is not known, but Watson insists it’s nothing sinister.
He added: ‘There’s no reason to believe that they were connected in any way.’
