What is with all these severed feet?

this is the fourth one washed up on the beaches in Canada in less than a year. And they are not even all paired up. This could get ugly ...

The police in Canada have a gruesome mystery to puzzle over as after a human foot was found washed up on a beach near the west-coast city of Vancouver. It is the fourth such foot to be found on beaches in the area in the past eight months. All four of the feet were wearing socks and running shoes and all four had been in the sea for some time.

But police say they have no idea how or why they came to be there and hope DNA tests, now under way, may help. Last August, two human feet washed up on the beaches of two small islands north of Vancouver. Then in February another single, right foot drifted ashore.

And now a fourth - again a right foot - has been found - this time on a beach in suburban Vancouver. The city's newspapers and coffee shops are buzzing with theories to explain the mystery. (BBC)
