Bozo’s Abound: Norse Funeral for Racoon a supposed explanation for first Montauk creature…not sure about the second Monty. Phewy BS! Anon. BS….
Update 11/7/2008: This story appears to get continued hits, so in a query to see if anything new out there to prompt your enquiries, I came upon this site…a site for those interested in the New England phenomenon of unexplained and explained critters
Update 8/18/08: Possible scam alert!
I have not posted much about this fascinating ‘it’. Not sure. I include this because I admired how defiant the sea creature was in the end. photoshopped or real? Not sure.
Probably some animal research facility disposed of this. I no sooner made light of that scenario than goof ball Sara of Beastie Weenie popped up with the popcorn fart thought of the day.
“I really hope its a dinosaur, but more then likely its some kind of muntant.
What I do know is there IS an animal testing site nearby, Plum Island, where they research animal/agricultural diseases. However its been rumoured to also be a facility for germ warfare.
Have you ever heard of the Montauk Project? The hidden bunkers where they supposedly did phycological warfare research. Something to think about… “
(Sara knows this is related to animal research facility nearby)
News Alert!!!!! (8/6/2008, 0700 PDST):
Update 3/22/09: “Alexis Rockman, a contemporary New York artist whose grand, mural-like paintings often focus on the natural world, has a new show at Nye Haus, open through April 18. The show includes a ten-foot painting in which the Montauk monster — that hairless, gnarled, toothy creature that washed up on a Montauk beach last summer — lies surrounded by detritus like Pepsi bottles and pieces of plastic.”
“We’re proud of our role as America’s first line of defense against foreign animal diseases.
We’re equally proud of our safety record. Not once in our nearly 50 years of operation has an animal pathogen escaped from the island.”
“In 2003 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) joined us on the island, taking responsibility for the safety and security of the facility.” (That crititcal huh?)

The Panama Creature (if real) appears less given to normal identification or linking to a typical land based animal (Montauk=Racoon; not that I lind Monty to a Racoon). “Zoologists in Panama said they’re not sure what the creature is, but said it resembles a dead fetus.”
“As soon as video of the monstrous creature was released, speculations began swirling. People said it was everything from an alien to a monster and an albino hairless sloth. There has been no word on whether investigators will perform a DNA test on the creature to determine what exactly it is.”
