Compelling evidence that the Montauk Monster is, in fact, some type of (formerly) cute dog.
An email from alert reader Marcus Hyde: “From the new photo supplied, it’s easy to see that it is a dog. Likely some breed of boxer or bulldog. There are remnants of fur still on the body. And the nose area is not a ‘beak’ but simply part of the skull left exposed from being nibbled off by fish or a dashing against a rock or just plain decomposition. I did a little rough photoshopping of my own to illustrate that the image is likely real, but it’s not great mystery after all. It’s a dog. Poor thing. It really doesn’t take some scientific expert to see this.”
