Montauk Monster=Half dog half turtle?

On Tuesday a photo showed up in the Gawker. The monster is very odd looking and a lot of people claim it to be photoshopped. There’s also a lot of “eyewitnesses” though and supposedly an old man took it off the beach to mount it on his wall. The tipster that sent it in to the Gawker in the first place was a viral marketer but she says it has nothing to do with any campaign.

It was rumored that this was part of the advertising for a new show on cartoon network called Cryptids Are Real. There are also rumors that it was a washed up experiment from an animal-disease research facility on Plum island which is right offshore from Montauk.

Either way this thing is pretty freaky looking and I wouldn’t put it past companies to make up a fake creature and have some actors to pretend they witnessed it. If it is some diseased animal though, it’s pretty freaky. I wouldn’t want to have a dog or turtle with that disease. Imagine getting bit with that beak!

Edit: Every time I tried to post this pic for awhile it kept breaking…freaky.

I also found out that an energy drink company called venom is offering a reward for anyone who can capture a “Monty”.

Also here’s a video from Fox claiming that it’s not real with Jeff Corwin for support. Lots of people say he looks scared and I agree that he’s stuttering a lot for someone who’s on tv all the time. They say that there’s a government official there with a gun forcing him to talk.

    Come on, it’s long island, have you been to Long Island, seen the people that live there? If ever there was a place to wash up mutated monsters of questionable origin Long Island would be it.

    lol actually no I haven’t been there. Whenever I get to go to New York I want to see the statue of liberty though.

    I don’t believe that Jeff Corwin’s official title is “Forensic Taxonomist” so yeah… There are some vague similarities in the bottom jaw to being a carnivore, but the top jaw is either deformed or just photoshopped if raccoon it is.

    There is a new view of it so if someone is photoshopping this monstrocity they are definitely working hard.

  5. Christine said,

    Aw, the new view is much less exciting and much more “I’m a bloated dog carcass”. Lame…
