Hello people..glad to be part of this site.:)
Ive got a rather interesting first post here, that some people here might find interest in.
A few years ago some friends of mine were up on the old Cascade Highway that goes through the little town i live in, and they found something up there that startled them...a severred hand that they had no idea, what it belonged to....closest thing i think it looks like is maybe a gorilla? But we defintiely dont have gorillas in British Columbia, Canada , haha. Well here is the picture, what do you guys think. And for the record, my friends were around 19-20 at the time...partied LOTS :P, had no knowledge in making props or anything like that in case you think they fabricated it somehow. Also, if your wondering why they didnt grab it, is becasue they are girls and they were disgusted by it.

So...what do you think? It still confuses me to this day.

Does it have an aposeable thumb? If not, I'd guess a decomposing bear claw. And not the tasty kind :D

Not sure if it has an aposeable thumb, but judging by the look of it from this angle, i would almost guarantee it has an aposeable thumb. And about it being a bear paw, i dont think so...as bear paws dont usually have long human like fingers...also, the claws look alot different from a bear

And here is a link in case the picture doesnt show up for anyone else.

It's hard to tell size from this picture,but if those are average pebbles I don't think that hand is very big.
The fingernails also look more like claws. Any more pictures?

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

no more pictures that i know of, i just happened to grab this picture off of one of my friends facebook page. Really wish i had more info on this. All i now is that it was found somehwere up the cascade highway, and it was years ago...and that it is not a bear. Growing up in this area ive seen plenty of bears and bear tracks...and this is not what a bear paw looks like.

Yeah... Bear paw. Texture of the skin of the soles is similar while the fur on the claws has grouped together in the wet which only enhances its finger-like appearance. Even the non-visible 5th digit would be somewhat set apart from the others and could also appear to be "thumb-like". Aren't bear paws sometimes taken as hunting trophies in North America?

Thanks for posting - very intersting. It looks like a left hand to me, with the thumb underneath the palm. Washed-up bodies and bits of body are notorious for looking like cryptid specimens when they are not unfortunately. Maybe non-bear, who knows?

NightWalker: why did you post a photo of a blue-furred hand for?? Thanks for the yowie claw though, I hadn't seen it or heard the story before. It sounds more convincing that the OP evidence imo.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Um... Because it's the paw of a black bear and makes a decent comparison of how claws can appear finger-like - http://www.alaska-in...17-pictures.htm

Cool pic! Thanks for sharing. The thing I noticed was where it was severed and how it must have been attached to a limb. More indicative of a paw (or foot) then a hand.

It looks very much like a bear paw to me too. The pad, hair and the "fingers" all look like bear to me.

I think we are looking at a right side paw, with the "little toe" being closest to the photographer.

This paw-pic shows long toes on the front paw of a brown bear also.

That is interesting. The 'claws' appear to be fingernails on top of the fingers, not claws projecting from them like a bear's.

They found what they thought might be a bigfoot hand and took one picture? SERIOUSLY?

Looks exactly like a bear paw, bears look like they have big 'palms' and short 'fingers' but that's because of the fur, get rid of the fur (or clog it together when wet) and they actually have long 'fingers' from what I have seen on the web. The claws look really similar as well.

Bear paws and human hands and feet are remarkably similar in morphology. In many cases the claws on a bears hind foot are not well pronounced.

BEAR FOOT ó This X-ray shows the similar bone structure of a human foot (left) and a black bearís hind paw. The arrows point out the main distinguishing difference in the toe joints. Photo provided by the B.C. Conservation Officer Service

A murder investigation launched after a severed foot was discovered last week near Radium has determined the remains to belong to a bear, not a human being, local police have confirmed.

Partial wildlife remains found out of context cause much concern over the possibility that the
unidentified remains may be of human origin. Wildlife forensic scientists are often asked to
identify unearthed bones found near human activity areas, such as new home construction,
excavation sites, etc. (See Figures 1 and 2.) There have even been cases involving skinned bear
paws that had been deliberately placed in public areas to startle those who mistaken them as
human hands.
