Something mysterious has washed up on the Newfoundland beach in Lower Cove at McIvers on the Bay of Islands lower north shore.
It is reported to be approximately 15-foot length including a pointed, 10-foot tail and has a single two foot long flipper-like appendage on its right side. The creature has no head and cannot be easily identified, even by locals who are familiar with the native marine life. It has a Loch Ness Monster/plesiosaur type look to it.
Its reported that there are patches of hair on the body, ruling out the possibility of it being a part of giant squid.
Tissue samples have been collected and will be examined by the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans in Corner Brook.
The Bay of Islands is a bay located on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland, in Canada. Corner Brook, with a population of just over 20,000 is the largest city in the area.
