HONOLULU, July 25 (UPI) -- A hand-shaped object that led Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources to call the police was determined to be a dried-out squid.

A woman said a group of teenagers and young adults from her family discovered the object, which resembled the severed hand of a small child, at Mokuauia Seabird Sanctuary, also known as Goat Island, and she urged them to call authorities Thursday, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday.

Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources responded to the scene and contacted the Honolulu Police Department's homicide unit upon viewing the object.

However, officials soon determined the object was actually a dried-out squid.
