Student claims responsibility for heart found outside Ryerson campus
Police say heart is too big to be human
Toronto police say a student has claimed responsibility for the heart found outside a building at Ryerson University.
Police say an arts student was taking pictures of it for school, and no criminality is involved.
Police don't believe it's a human heart due to its large size.
A groundskeeper found the organ outside the Chang School building on Victoria Street near Yonge Street this morning.
Police were called to the building just before 9 a.m. Investigators say the organ might have fallen out of a garbage can when it was being emptied outside the building.
Investigators are now calling in a doctor to confirm the type of organ, and what species it came from.
The Twitter account for the university says that the organ is believed to be a cow heart.
