Why the Right Feet?

Sneaker-clad human feet have been washing ashore in British Columbia.

VICTORIA, British Columbia, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- For the third time in six months, a human right foot in a sneaker was found washed ashore on islands off British Columbia.

Last August, two other right feet in men's size 12 sneakers washed ashore on two other nearby islands,and the RCMP wasn't able to match DNA from any police databases, the newspaper said.

Gail Anderson, a forensic entomologist from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, told the Times Colonist it's common for hands, feet and the head to detach as a body decomposes in water but she said it's unusual for them to float.

I wonder if, somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, only left feet wash ashore?
