Authorities in Quincy, Massachusetts are trying to determine what two young boys found when they were exploring in the woods.
Sgt. Steven Leanues picked up what appears to be a decomposed foot that the boys found in the woods at Lakeville.
Police Chief Frank Alvilhiera sent it to the medical examiner, who determined it is not human, although it appears to have five toes. Alvilhiera said it might be a bear paw or perhaps it belonged to a different animal, although it appears to be human.
Until the medical examiner does further testing, its identity remains uncertain. “It will take some time before we hear any official results,” Alvilhiera said.
