Is this Bigfoot's big foot? Grisly find has Quincy, Mass., baffled

A mysterious and potentially grisly find by two young boys in a wooded area has police and residents of Quincy, Mass., baffled.

According to the Patriot Ledger newspaper, “On March 29, Sgt. Steven Leanues picked up what appears to be a decomposed foot that the boys found in the woods off Pantheon Road. Police Chief Frank Alvilhiera sent it to the medical examiner, who determined it is not human, although it appears to have five toes.”

Tests are still being conducted, but the strange find has locals asking: What has five toes and looks like a foot — but isn’t? Maybe Bigfoot, but more likely a bear. Strange as it may seem, this is not the first time that animal bones have been mistaken for human remains.

Dollar says it’s a bear paw. Years ago I investigated when someone found one tossed in a parking lot. Skinned, they look a lot like a big human hand. The last phalange will be cut off to lose the claw.

It fooled even the docs at the ER for a while.

Maybe it is billions of years old. Quick measure the relative proportion of sister elements in the closest igneous rock layers. Be sure to pick the right kind of radiometric test for the age range you want.

I was thinking that as well. Looks like leftovers from a BBQ joint.

Let’s speculate and not do any DNA testing that would prove it is not bigfoot.

Bigfoot remains are immediately picked up and removed by UFO’s. The remains are then flown to the planet Bolok for burial.

Put a keychain on it and carry it as a lucky bigfoot.

Thanks lowbridge.
Maybe Bigfoot, but more likely a bear.
If a Bigfoot loses one foot, doesn't it just cry out for an examination of its name -- shouldn't it be called Bigfeet in the first place?
