The post titled ‘A Year Later…The Truth Behind the Montauk Monster, Revealed‘ claims last summer’s favorite cryptid was only a dead raccoon that had been placed on a child’s floating device with a watermelon, some cloth and other debris.
Grant claims to have met up with a friend he hadn’t seen in several years at a cafe. While talking, the unnamed friend tells Grant that he and two of his buddies were responsible for the creature that would become the Montauk Monster. The three gathered whatever they could from a beach about 15 miles from where the Montauk Monster was discovered (including a dead raccoon), bound the debris together, set it on fire and pushed it out to sea.
“this creature was honored with a viking funeral, not merely exploited for crass entertainment. In the interest of full disclosure, this did happen shortly after a waterboarding endurance competition, and just before a clothespins-on-your-genitals challenge.”
Size may or may not be an issue for this claim. One of the many scientists who piped in on the creatures discovery IDs the beast as a raccoon and states the size of the body is considerably smaller than it appears.
Does this explain the 2008 Montauk Monster?
And what about the more recent body?
