A photo posted by Gothamist’s Jen Carlson on Monday of a scary-looking carcass found along the East River had everyone rehashing memories of the “Montauk Monster,” another unidentified mutant animal that washed up on a Long Island beach in 2008.
Will we ever really know?
Even Ginley told Joe Coscarelli of the The Daily Intel that the animal’s feet are “not pig-like at all.” She speculates that it could be a “monstrously huge rat.”
Check out the photos for yourself and tell us what you think.
For reference, this is what the Montauk Monster looked like. Based on its teeth and front paws, the creature was determined to most likely be a raccoon.
