Remains found at a North York garbage transfer station belong to a bear, and not a human as previously reported.
An employee at a garbage transfer station in North York discovered what they said was a human hand on a conveyer belt Friday morning, police say.
Police learned of the grisly discovery, which was made at the Dufferin Transfer Station, at 11:18 a.m.
The worker told police that they recognized the material on the conveyer belt as a human hand, but police have since confirmed the remains belong to a bear.
Partridge said workers stayed inside the garbage station during the police investigation.
