      Another human foot has been found washed up on British Columbian shores.

      According to RCMP, when a man was walking his dogs around 8 a.m. on December 7 in the Jordan River area northwest of Sooke, B.C., on Vancouver Island, one of his dogs discovered a foot and leg in a shoe.

      The human bones, which included the foot, tibia (shinbone), and fibula (leg bone), were seized and the area was searched, according to CBC News.

      The B.C. Coroners Service is conducting an investigation to identify the person and determine the cause of death.

      The discovery marks the 13th foot found on B.C. shorelines since 2007. Although there have been some hoaxes, several previous cases have been linked to people who died by accident or suicide. 

      The last foot found was on Botanical Beach, also northwest of Sooke, in February 2016.
