Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A Canadian police officer investigating a witness' report of a severed foot at the side of a road made a considerably less alarming discovery -- a discarded mannequin foot.
The Delta Police Department in British Columbia said an officer on foot in Ladner was stopped by a passing driver.
"The driver appears quite distraught and states that there is a severed foot roadside by the pump house," the department said in a Facebook post.
The post said the officer went to the location and discovered the object was "luckily" not a human body part, but rather "the foot of a mannequin."
"If you happen upon a mannequin with a missing left foot, let them know that it can be found at the Delta Police Department," the post said.
