The creature from the deep (Chupacabra? Montauk Monster?)

The creature from the deep

Monster

Mystery ... the creature was dragged from the lake

By STAFF REPORTER

Published: 21 May 2010

THE body of a mysterious creature with fearsome teeth, thick black fur and a rat-like tail has been dragged from a lake.

The hideous beast was discovered by two horrified nurses after their dog Sam pulled it from the murky water.

The gruesome animal has baffled experts and triggered speculation that it could be similar to the famous "Montauk monster", which was washed up in New York two years ago.

Pictures were posted on a local website after nurses Joseph Murrillo and Kelly Hick found the unidentified creature while they were hiking on the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug reservation in Canada.

The mutant animal is bald on its face, head and feet and has tusk-like teeth.

The grisly online snaps came with an explanation that read: "The dog jumped in the lake and pulled the creature to the rocks and dragged it out for the hikers to see and these are the photos they took.

"The creature's tail is like a rat's tail and it is a foot long."

Bloggers have now been speculating about what the animal is. Some have suggested that it looks similar to an otter with the face of a boar-like animal.

One posted online: "There are experienced hunters that have been around for decades. They have 'trap lines' which refer to as hunting grounds. And in all these years they have never seen anything like this."

Another said: "That certainly is a face only a mother can love. It looks like some sort of otter, weasel-type thing."

It has been compared to the monster found in Montauk in 2008. It was never officially identified.

Give me a tooth count. Bet it’s an otter. Hair slips from skin on tail and head from being submerged.

The hair on this animal looks like otter.

Montauk Monster websites have lots of pix
of what look like giant tortoises without
their shell.

I’m no marine biologist, but really....!

Call Monster Quest lol

Monster Quest would have already discovered this except on the day they were supposed to go out on expedition, the tailgate on the truck didn't work, someone forgot to set the alarm clock, it was too wet, it was too dry, it wasn't quite wet or dry enough, the creature mysteriously found the one camera that didn't work, the sun was in their eyes,.... Something, always something but they were just this close (all said with the tone of breathless anticipation).

It is a dog cross-breed gone wrong.

Pit-Bull & dachshund. Probably had a birth defect, was euthanized and dumped in the river.

Wish they would have put a pen or a quarter next to this thing so we could get a ballpark idea of its size.

Probably this thing could have been saved if it weren't for greed-induced global warming and lack of access to health care. ;') Thanks KoRn.
