Gabriola Island, Salish Sea

A 14th human foot was found on Sunday, May 13, 2018 — this one in a hiking boot — washed ashore on Gabriola Island, Canada. So continues the mystery of the human feet floating ashore in the Pacific Northwest, an odd phenomenon that has captivated residents, scientists, and area law enforcement since 2007. In August of that year, not one but two disembodied human feet, both right ones, were found on islands in the Salish Sea, a network of coastal waterways between Vancouver Island and Canada’s westernmost province. In the years since, multiple detached feet have been discovered on the coasts of numerous islands in British Columbia, as well as in the U.S. cities of Tacoma and Seattle.
