Police investigating the discovery of a severed foot found near a trash can in Queens have ruled that it belonged to an animal.

It was initially believed to be that of a young child after authorities say a man found it while he was taking out the trash in Rosedale on Sunday.

Police searched the area with cadaver dogs, but didn't find any other parts.
