The Oregon state medical examiner's office says that supposed human hand found on a beach at Gearhart last week was really the remains of a seal flipper.


Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings said the medical examiner's office looked at the decomposing item Tuesday.

A retired police officer walking the beach with his young granddaughter reported finding what looked like the decomposed remains of a hand last Friday evening.

An Astoria police detective took the item to the medical examiner's office in Clackamas.
