WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williams County Sheriff’s Office says an object found at a home near the North Dakota oil patch city of Williston is likely a bear paw and not a human foot as had been rumored.

A statement from the sheriff’s office says investigators from the department and the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded to a report of a foot found on private property last Thursday. The object was examined by the state medical examiner and determined not to be human. The statement identified the body part as possibly belonging to a bear.

The sheriff’s office also said rumors that a body was found in the Little Muddy River were unfounded.
