Once again a severed human body part has washed up on the western shore of Canada.
A hiker exploring Botanical Beach near Port Renfrew Sunday afternoon came across a running shoe containing a human foot in a sock.
Because Canada is overrun by Infocult readers, the reporting is steeped in awareness of this classic real-life Gothic. For example,
This is the 13th foot found washed up on the B.C. coast since 2007.
McLintock says of the 12 previous instances, coroners have been able to identify 10 of the feet, belonging to seven people.
And even in the headline, where we can hear some Gothic weariness:
A severed human foot, wearing sock and shoe, washed ashore on Vancouver Island — which isn’t that unusual
