Police seize ‘Wolverine’s hand’ in drug raid (Wait, what?)

Police in Guelph, Ontario, probably didn’t mean to sound alarming when they reported they’d confiscated “Wolverine’s hand” during a drug bust. However, the hirsute mutant can regenerate, and these are (alleged) meth dealers we’re talking about, so what are expected to think?

But no, CBC News reports, these were Wolverine claws found among the cash, small quantities of meth, ecstasy, heroin and marijuana, bulletproof vest and assorted knives, hatchets and machetes.

A police department spokesman suggested “Wolverine’s hand” is actually a “push dagger,” but that’s not right, either. It’s actually called a claw gauntlet, among other things, but it seems awfully popular in … certain circles: U.K. customs officials seized steel Wolverine claws on at least two occasions in 2009, and in Utah in 2012, a 19-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly went after his roommate with a pair.
