A mysterious body part was found by two boys playing in the woods of Lakeville, Massachusetts, late last month.

It seems to be an appendage, like a foot. The Patriot Ledger reported what appears to be a decomposing body part was picked up by the Lakeland Police Department and sent to the medical examiner for evaluation.

Police Chief Frank Alvilhiera told the Patriot Ledger last week that the examiner said the appendage was not human, but noted that it does appear to have five toes. Some have speculated that it could be evidence of a so-called “Bigfoot.”

Alvilhiera though it could be a bear paw or that of another animal.
