2008 Montauk Monster Part Of Bizarre 'Viking Funeral'

Fox News picked up the story on assme.org by Drew Grant explaining the origin of last summer’s Montauk Monster.

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?

New Montauk Monster Found

Last summer, the Montauk Monster was all the rage in cryptozoology until Tom Biscardi’s Bigfoot Press Conference got us all more excited about Bigfoot DNA than a weird ass creature washed up on the beach up towards the Hamptons.

Photos and reports of a new Montauk Monster have surfaced, said to be from the shores of North Fork of Long Island from early May of this year.

Nicky Papers of www.montauk-monster.com was called to the scene and claims to have the body in “cooler full of ice”, I guess for later testing, poking, and prodding.

“The beast smelled like a mix of low-tide and rotten garbage. It really smelled horrific. I couldn’t help but take numerous pictures of it and video clips.”

As suggested, but never proved with the body from last summer, there may be a link between the creature and the nearby Plum Island Animal Disease Center.
