Looks like a furless cat that someone placed a beak over the nasal area. A few more pics and as you said something for scale would have answered many questions.
Deby:Yeah. It's interesting, but I'd urge caution and suggest all conventional options be looked at first, to see if they can be eliminated or not.
Maybe a dog ? Is it really a beak or simply a nasal bone/upper jaw ? Looks roughly dog-sized. Surely there should be more photos. Why do people always take just one ?
Well, Nick, the current explanation from the "authorities"---the "prosaic" one---is that it is a "racoon."Pardon Me???That has got the biggest racoon in the universe (if that would be the case). I'm sorry, I don't buy that. I'm willing to consider a canine. Maybe a mutated pit bull ( as somebody told me). I admit we should look for the most simple, "normal" explanation and see if it fits the facts (a la Occam's Razor) but I have to admit that it is too creepy of a "coincidence" that this whatever-it-is washed up in Montauk Island, THE Moutauk place---it of the ghastly history---you know the story, don't you Nick?If Occam fails, then we must put away the razor and look somewhere else. Doctors have a saying---"When you hear hoofbeats, think of a horse, not a zebra." Well, docs, sometimes it is a zebra that is galloping there. Accept it. Lisa Shiel came to mind as I saw the picture.I agree this thing is creepy. Out of H.R. Giger's daydreams.
C:LOl, yes I think a racoon is highly unlikely!!Yeah, it is odd that it appeared at Montauk, given all the high strangeness in the area. Yes, I've read a a lot about Montauk and it's definitely a weird set of events. The Giger comment is right on target!Neil:Yeah, I think the beak angle could actually be nasal bone that makes it appear as a beak, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it all develops.
More like a rodent than a cat. Creepy no matter you look at the beast.Kate
