Just a reminder that if you find something that resembles a human hand in the woods, it might not be a human hand.

Here’s an example of that from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation:

Mystery Hand – Niagara County

On May 13, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office contacted ECO Holzle for his assistance in identifying what was suspected to be a human hand. Officer Holzle checked with DEC Regional Wildlife Biologist Connie Adams, who determined the mystery hand is actually a paw from a black bear.
