    Default Mysterious "creature" washed up on a Long Island beach





    August 01, 2008 12:00am

    THE photographed remains of a mysterious "creature" washed up on a Long Island beach near New York have led to a frenzy of speculation.

    News of the find has excited conspiracy theorists around the world.

    Dubbed the Montauk Monster, rumours grew that it was part of a secret breeding program by the US Government.

    But gawker.com has suggested it is a marketing stunt for a new US TV cartoon series.

    My mother sent me this link, so I'm posting it in her honor. Is this even a legitimate news source? I have no clue.

    If it's a marketing stunt for a cartoon it's pretty gross! I agree that this thing is probably not real. But they said the same thing when they first saw a platypus too.

    The head does not look like a fox, rat, or anything else that should go with that body. I don't know how anyone would think it would be good marketing/pr, if it's a marketing stunt. Experimental mutant...maybe. I don't know, but it's grossing me out. I hope nothing like that ever washes up on my beach. Yuck!

    Montauk monster? - snopes.com

    The general consensus is it is most probably a mouldy racoon.

    That's what this guy says too.

    Pretty sad when a decomposing raccoon makes international news. Why didn't some "journalist" think to ask a zoologist?

    Cartoon Network was advertising a new show, Cryptids Are Real, maybe it's an ad scheme for that.

    Looks like a beaver to me, a shaved beaver.

    I love shaved beavers.
