The latest example of the Montauk Monster has washed up under the Brooklyn Bridge. In the shadows of the iconic cable-stay bridge lay a creature so unusual that it defied classification, descriptions were possible but not without stomach churning results.
Very similar to photo’s of previous Montauk monsters, seemingly the same species as the previous creatures, there is still no answer as to what specific species it may be or the source of the unusual animal.
Amateur photographer Denise Ginley snapped the latest mutant creature while walking along the East River on Sunday. She said: “We were horrified by it and we took some camera phone pictures. Then finally we decided to come back with my camera and I got up the courage to climb over the fence and get closer to it.”
But the New York Parks Department shrugged off the horrifying find, insisting it was just a pig. a spokesman said they had disposed of the creature, adding: “It was a pig left over from a cook-out. It was a roasted pig. We didn’t count its toes, we just threw it out.”
The original Montauk monster was found on a Long Island beach and generated massive amounts of speculation until the carcass disappeared. A second monster was photographed in Brooklyn only a few months ago, again the evidence has since been disposed of.
