Another Foot Sneaks Ashore in Canada
Anyone missing something like this?   (?wolleydog)

(Newser) – This mystery has legs. Yet another sneakered foot has washed ashore in Canada, becoming about the 12th such find in four years. The foot, inside a running shoe, with a bit of leg bone attached, was spotted floating along the shore of Vancouver's False Creek, reports AP. The others have been found in the same general area—near Vancouver, the southern Georgia Strait, or off Washington state.

Only two of the feet have been identified, and they belonged to men reported missing. Officials believe the feet may have separated from bodies naturally in the water, and weren't amputated. (Illinois authorities had a scare earlier this month when a boy reported spotting a foot in a local lake. After an extensive search, officials found a foot ... belonging to a mannequin.)
