On the morning of January 30th this year, Tricia Mahmias of Locust Valley NY was walking on the beach in Bayville NY, at the Connecticut end of Long Island with her husband and two dogs. She came across and snapped this extraordinary, ugly dead animal. It was her son Michael, an Environmental Scientist, who filled her in later about the Montauk Monster. She checked out the Newsday piece online: “And lo and behold it is the same thing – and in very good condition. There is no way this is a raccoon or any other kind of animal I have ever seen before.”

On March 20 just past, student Jacob Trevino reported, “Me and a couple of friends traveled to stay on Galveston Island (Crystal Beach to be exact) for Spring Break. We were driving along the beach listening to our friends tell us about this “thing” they saw while running along the beach earlier that morning. So we went to go see it. I saw it, and had no clue what it was. It had a beak, webbed feet, and looked like some sort of “ocean rat.” It was washed up along the beach along with tons of jellyfish. I took photos only to realize that later on that I’ve seen this thing before on a various website post. I wish I got a few better photos.”
It’s my honor and pleasure to announce that a Montauk Monster discovery was made this weekend by Linda Ingmanson on Silver Sands Beach in Milford, CT. Linda and her husband were walking on the beach when they found a mutated creature that bared resemblance to the Montauk Monster of recent years.
I received an Email from Linda Ingmanson on Sunday morning (10/3) explaining the details.
I had a brief phone conversation with Linda yesterday afternoon to verify her story and learn more about the details of her discovery. She noted that the creature was bloated, stocky, and looked nothing like anything she’s seen before. Linda said that the creature had an odd “sweet smell” which puzzled her as the Montauk Monster is notorious for smelling like “rotten garbage”. Linda and her husband did not attempt to remove the decaying carcass from the beach as they feared that it may be diseased.
I did not have a chance to make a trip to Silver Sands Beach to see the beast with my own eyes. I encourage all interested parties in Milford, CT to search for the rotting and bloated carcass and inform authorities.
We may still have an opportunity to bring the remains to a laboratory for testing before the mutated beast is washed back to sea. This may be our only chance to determine what the creature really is; drawing a possible link to the other carcasses that have been discovered with respect to origins from Plum Island.
The search for the Montauk Monster is officially on!
Well I couldn’t have said it better myself! I’d like to thank Jake for his candid review of Montauk-Monster.com With the weather getting warmer on Long Island, there is a strong chance that another mysterious creature will wash up again. As many people will find themselves walking their dogs on the beach or relaxing with friends and family on the East End of Long Island, please be aware of your surroundings.
Likewise with the Montauk Monster discoveries of both 2008 and 2009, I strongly encourage anyone who may find a mysterious or odd looking creature washed up on the beach to contact Montauk-Monster.com immediately. The Montauk Monster has “mysteriously” disappeared after authorities have been contacted on every occasion the media has brought attention to it. It’s my mission to ensure a situation like that will not happen again.
In the words of the MTA, (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) “If you see something, say something.” I’ve made a commitment to shedding light on this conspiracy and providing an explanation to one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Stay tuned.
Greetings! After a short hiatus over the winter, Montauk-Monster.com is back and dedicated to solving the mysteries behind the Montauk Monster. As many people are still skeptical about the origin of the washed-up creatures and what they really are, (species?) I can assure you that these creatures do in fact exist as they’ve washed up on several occasions.
Much like the previous two seasons, I’ll be covering all Montauk Monster news and updates for our readers. Additionally, I’ll be spending more time focusing on obtaining interviews from several eye witnesses who will describe and verify what they have seen during up close and personal encounters with the Montauk Monster.
I strongly encourage our readers to subscribe to our mailing list as I will be releasing never before seen pictures of the Montauk Monster in addition to all breaking news and updates. In the meantime, I will be presenting various facts about the Montauk Monster that further verify its origins and elaborate on the theories that have been previously presented.
At this time, I’d like to thank the supporters of this blog and the readers who’ve informed us of the various Montauk Monster sightings on Long Island beaches. Simply put, I understand that my commitment and dedication to this blog is important. The more people that are aware of the Montauk Monster, the easier it will be to identify what it really is the next time it washes up.
As my efforts in independent journalism have not gone unnoticed, the coverage we’ve received in 2009 has greatly helped our cause in identifying the Montauk Monster and the areas of which the carcasses are washing up.
I appreciate everyone’s kind words, support, and theories. Let’s keep the positive momentum going!

While doing some maintenance on Montauk-Monster.com we noticed an issue with our RSS feed where posts from this summer we not being distributed properly. Unfortunately, some posts were not distributed at all. News stations, bloggers, and the media who rely on RSS feeds to receive breaking news were in the dark this summer when the Montauk Monster washed up at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk during an afternoon wedding reception. It received very little coverage, as we attribute this to technical issues.
Moving forward, please check out the Gurney’s Inn story from Montauk-Monster.com here:
Eric Striffler was the only blogger who provided commentary for this discovery. Once again, Eric did a fine job informing his dedicated fan base and the YouTube community the details behind this story. I can assure readers that the discovery at Gurney’s Inn was certainly not a raccoon (I was an eye-witness) if skeptics think otherwise.
Another point that Eric Striffler made was that there was a lack of press covering this particular discovery. As I explained earlier, the issue with our RSS feed caused “the lack of press” around this story as we have thousands of RSS subscribers. If it wasn’t for Erick Striffler’s commentary, this Montauk Monster occurrence might have been completely swept under the rug.
The monster discovered by PJ Monte at Gurney’s Inn was covered briefly on Fox. (America’s Newsroom) It was a brief segment, but the pictures were broadcasted.
A few local media sources and bloggers covered this story; however it lacked coverage from the major media sources to really get the word out.
Having an up close and personal with the Gurney’s Inn Monster that was discovered the weekend of July 4th 2009 was a memorable experience as this creature was the most vicious looking one of all-time. Coincidently, this one also smelled the worst as it triggered my gag reflex during my viewing. With recent discoveries of a sloth-like creature in Panama, discovering cryptids has become increasingly popular since the summer of 2008 when Monte was first discovered.
The species of the Montauk Monster is still undetermined because a formal autopsy has never been conducted. Additionally, the individual carcasses discovered have not been preserved. (The Clapsaddle Carcass was taken by authorities, however lab results were never disclosed.)
Many people have expressed their feelings that the police should be called immediately. It’s not always that simple as the individuals who’ve discovered “beastie” are unsure who to call as they think they may be holding an animal of tremendous value.
Recently, in Texas the remains of what appears to be a chupacabra have been found. The unidentified carcass was taken to a local taxidermy school where it was frozen and preserved. The gentleman who found the dead animal was really thinking when he removed it from the ground. What has been determined is the animal was not native to Texas in the area where it was discovered.
What does this mean for the Montauk Monster? Should another carcass be found on the shores of Long Island it should be removed and brought to a taxidermist immediately. That certainly is a feasible way in getting to the bottom of recent discoveries and the mystery behind them.
Below is a clip from CNN indicating the proper procedure for handling unidentified animals. Find out who your local taxidermist is and have their contact information handy should you stumble upon a Montauk Monster!
A very funny and entertaining cartoon about the death of the Montauk Monster hit YouTube earlier this week. The Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot are shown as the parents of the Montauk Monster as they mourn the loss of their son “Christopher”.
Brilliant script! I’m not sure who created this video, but I’d be interested in seeing a follow-up to this cartoon in another YouTube release. In any case, excellent job!
