A piece of remains found outside a Queens home over the weekend is from an animal, not a child as previously believed.

The owner of the home on 139th Avenue in Rosedale spotted the remains in the grass as he took out the trash late Sunday afternoon and called police.

Cops spent several hours canvassing the area with cadaver dogs Sunday night.

Investigators said at first that the foot was from a young child, but police said Monday that the remains were from an animal.

The homeowner who made the grisly discovery, identified by the Daily News as Paul Lawrence, described the appendage as a "piece of meat."
