(Newser) – Yet another severed foot—the sixth in a year and second this week—washed ashore yesterday in Canada on an island near Vancouver. Like all but one of the others, it was a sneaker-clad right foot. "It's very unusual," said a police spokeswoman. "To my knowledge, we have not encountered anything like this." So far, investigators are stumped.
