Toronto police sealed off a downtown alley after someone thought they made a grisly discovery Monday afternoon.
It turns out the mangled-looking and apparently severed finger found in the lane was a forgotten or discarded movie prop.
The fake finger was used as a prop in a zombie film, police spokeswoman Const. Wendy Drummond told CP24.
The digit was found by an alarmed passerby in an alley near Front Street West and University Avenue at about 1 p.m.
