Mystery 'monster' animal washes up on New York beach - video

A strange-looking creature has become the subject of conspiracy theories in New York.

A dead animal washed up on a New York beach last week, with people debating that it is either a dog, a pig, a giant rat or some form of mutant beast, reports The Telegraph.

The New York Parks Department have stated that it is a pig that has become bloated after being in the river, but it appears to have toes instead of hooves.


The animal was found by Denise Ginley, who photographed it after walking under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Mrs Ginley said: "We were horrified by it and we took some camera phone pictures and 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.

"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."

She added: "I think it could be a monstrously huge rat, but it could also be a monster. A rat that big would pretty much be a monster anyway, wouldn't it?"

An online writer later launched a conspiracy theory, stating: "I don't think it's purely coincidence that these unidentifiable creatures have washed up on shores around Plum Island where the government has their Center for Animal Diseases.

"I think these poor things are lab experiments the govt doesn't want us to know about."

However, a New York Parks Department officer said: "It was a pig left over from a cookout. We disposed of it.

"It was a roasted pig we threw it out. We didn't count its toes, we just threw it out."

    It looks like a pig cause of the face and the ears and how big it is, but it's feet are not.
    Maybe its a mix breed and maybe whoever created it, didn't like it and wanted to get rid of it?

    So they figured out it was a pig, but still chose to do a segment on it, of which 80% is still portraying the pig as a some kind of monster. Talk about a slow news day.

    poor creature (if it was formerly alive, and not something made on a movie set ) looks suspiciously like the one that was found on a beach (also in ny) a few years ago.

    I find this highly upsetting.

    Somehow and somewhere, some poor soul lost their job at KFC due to their negligence.

    There are uglier stuff alive than that dead bloated rotten whatever pig it was.
    So no nightmare for me. I'll sleep well.

    doesn't look like a pig to me. esp not the feet or face. The ears should be thinner too. It still looks like a dog to me after watching the vid. But can't imagine why it's fur is gone.
