A mysterious ‘monster’ like creature has been found washed up on the shore near Plum Island in New York City. The shocking pictures below were snapped by an amateur photographer who spotted the strange being while strolling under Manhattan’s Brooklyn Bridge recently.
Some people, government officials included, have been quick to say that the entity is likely to be a pig that’s been bloated by the water. In fact, the New York City Police Department were quick to release a statement to that effect, but closer inspection seems to undermine their hasty explanation. For example, see below – the creature doesn’t have hooves as a pig would (see right). Instead, it has toes.
Denise Ginley, the woman who first discovered the bizarre creature told the media, “I was horrified by it and took some camera phone pictures and then finally decided to come back with my good camera and I got up the courage to climb over the fence and get closer to it.”
Other more down-to-earth explanations have ranged from dogs to possums to even giant rats, but here’s something we find particularly noteworthy about this discovery. What else is found in Plum Island…? The US Center for Animal Disease. Some online theorists are suggesting that the monster may in fact be the result of some strange government hybrid testing.
Mrs. Ginley continued, “I definitely agree that the feet are not pig-like at all. No hooves or cloven feet to be seen it definitely had five toes on all its paws, front and back. I think it could be a huge rat, but it could also be a monster. A rat that big would pretty much be a monster anyway, wouldn’t it?”
So far, the mystery remains unsolved…
