Police in Canada recently discovered that a reported "severed foot" actually belonged to a mannequin.



Officers were informed of the seemingly alarming discovery that had been made in British Columbia, with the Delta Police Department reporting that an officer had been stopped by a "distraught" passing driver.

The force said in a Facebook post: "The driver appears quite distraught and states that there is a severed foot roadside by the pump house."

The post explained how the officer travelled to the location but made the discovery that the object was "luckily" not a human body part and was simply "the foot off a mannequin".

The police force added: "If you happen upon a mannequin with a missing left foot, let them know that it can be found at the Delta Police Department."
