A severed foot found in Williams County late last week is not human.
That's the determination of the North Dakota medical examiner.
The foot is believed to be from a bear.
It was found on private property northwest of Williston and detectives looked into the possibility of a crime.
But they say x-rays confirmed it is not human.
Meanwhile, Williams County officials are trying to end rumors of a human body being found in the Little Muddy River.
They say that is not true and that there have been no human bodies recovered anywhere in Williams County.
