Montauk Monster Washes Up On A New York Beach«»Hype:
The story goes that local youths just found it, photographed it, then sold it to papers (yay, humanity!) Now, this happened near Plum Island Animal Disease Center, which brought up theories about the government doing weird experiments. Its dinosaur beak was pointed out along with the speculation that it could be a previously undiscovered prehistoric mammal.
Other possible identifications of the creature included a dog and a turtle without its shell (but turtles don't have teeth).
It's also apparently not a demon dog who only serves the great and powerful Zuul...
Larry Penny, the East Hampton Natural Resources Director, along with other experts, confirmed it was nothing more than a decomposing raccoon carcass, which matched dental and skeletal points but was missing its upper jaw.
Since the case of the Montauk Monster was solved, other carcasses have been found in the same area. A website called montauk-monster.com is dedicated to following up on these cases with photographs and insists that the similarities between all of the beasts means they are coming from Plum Island. This means that if you ever go to Plum Island, if this is what the raccoons look like, you better watch your motherf*cking back when you run into their sharks, because in the rest of the world, raccoons look like this:
It seems like another one has washed ashore, this time on the other side of the country. A deformed creature was found on the shore of Seal Beach, California. It has been noted that it looks a lot like the original Montauk Monster. Could it be another raccoon? Or something different?l< << PREV 1 of 10 NEXT >>
