NEW YORK, - A New York woman who photographed a strange carcass beneath the Brooklyn Bridge said she does not believe the animal was a pig.
Denise Ginley, who photographed the bizarre carcass Sunday while walking with her boyfriend, said she does not agree with Parks Department officials who described it as a "discarded cooked pig," the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
"The Parks Dept. was probably very quick to identify it as a pig and dispose of it, but it is most certainly not a pig," Ginley said. "The most obvious sign being the lack of a cloven hoof, instead this creature has five digits all close together."
"My best guess would be that this is some sort of raccoon or giant rodent. The missing upper jaw makes it very difficult to identify and the lack of distinct canine teeth on the lower jaw is confusing," she said.
