It's the latest monster on the market.

Actually, now that I've searched around, it sort of resembles a dead mythological griffin in a way.

Trippy looking creature.
I doubt if it real. I need more photos of the monster.
You find something like that and you can only take ONE picture? ::)
Sounds interesting...Go on.

Yeah, and who would let some guy drag it away stating that he was going to mount it on his wall?  And animal control wouldn't come?  Hmmmm.

I know where I seen a creature like that before.
It was from a movie that was made in the 70's called
"At the Earth's Core"
It had Doug McClure.
They were telepathic and they controlled humans to be thier slaves.
Sounds interesting...Go on.

 I gotta keep my dungeon creatures chained up better, especially the baby griffins. Any resemblance?  :P

Heaven won't take me and hell's afraid I'll take over.

Ooooooh.  Caroline Munro and Douggie McClure--a cinematic event!  My favorite part of that movie were the sound effects; almost as good as Sid and Marty Krofft's Land Of the Lost.

P.S.:  It's a dead raccoon.

There is no way that animal is a sea-bound creature. It's 100% mammal. Mammals need air to breathe, so mankind would have seen this creature swimming near the surface of the water for centuries. I think they nailed it by saying it was a raccoon whose nasal cartilage and fur rotted away in the ocean. This is in no way some monster creature that is a brand new find for mankind!

PPI Tim

It could be this old lady I saw in the Library.
The face is looks the same.
She did check out a travel book about the east coast. :-\
Sounds interesting...Go on.

Its hard to say what this was before it started to decompose. However, I do not think it was a unseen sea monster of some kind.

Here's a raccoon paw...looks pretty long, just like the "monster"



And here's a raccoon skull...looks just like the "monster"

So it's either a raccoon, or a pit bull.

PIT BULL.... That is what it is I think.

I know what they call it............photoshop

PPI Brian

I agree; I think it's a dog that's been in the water for a long time. See the restraints tied around one of it's legs? Some cruel bastard probably tied it up and threw it in the water.

I still think it is this old lady I saw in the library.

I think I know who you mean.  I saw her crossing Golfcrest last week and snapped this pic:

Hey, I think that's the person who stole my car. ;D

Kristen

Thanks for the 2nd photo Dave.  From that angle it definitelty looks like a dog.

Jeff Corwin weighed in on this and identified the creature as a decomposing raccoon.  There was a reference to him in one of the linked articles, but it seems to have disappeared.  However, here is an image posted to support the theory:

Thanks Karl. Now it's clear as day. Dog!  :P

No, I thought it was a raccoon the whole time, if you go back to my very first post. :)

bellalaghoste

wow those pics make me think raacoon. Not dog know.  Are they going to do dna test?

Quote from: PPI Dave on August 05, 2008, 06:16:15 PMSo it's either a raccoon, or a pit bull.  No, it's a raccoon.  Definitely.  This post has not been altered or fornicated in any way.

Ah yes, there it is.   ;)

I love that saying....I haven't heard it in ages.

So it's a mutant killer aquatic radiated extraterrestial undead racoon, how is that not a monster?

Hey Karl,
I really can't tell which is which?
Which picture is Senator Thurman again
Sounds interesting...Go on.

johnny

Ahaha, I just chortled (as I was eating some oatmeal) at Karl's post of Storm Thurman and the Montauk picture and my cube neighbors heard me. Only if they knew...  :D
