BREAKING NEWS: Montauk Monster found at Gurney’s Inn

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

Just in time for 4th of July weekend, the Montauk Monster has made its return to the shores of Long Island washing up at Gurney’s Inn. (Oceanside resort located in Montauk, NY) The initial discovery was made by PJ Monte and friends while walking on beach property owned by Gurney’s Inn. (July 2nd 2009 at 6:15 PM) The dead and bloated carcass washed up during an elegant oceanfront wedding. With gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean it’s no surprise that the Montauk Monster decided to crash the party!

As for the wedding party, the carcass went undetected as PJ Monte and friends moved it to a different location and the photography session began shortly after. Now you are probably wondering how once again I made it to the eye of the storm to cover the breaking news. Allow me to give you the play-by-play.

While on Facebook this evening, I saw an update on PJ Monte’s wall indicating that he found The Montauk Monster as he uploaded photographs to his Flickr account. Yours truly, (Nicky Papers!) is connected to PJ through mutual friends. (God bless social networking!) Within 10 minutes of PJ’s wall posting I was able to get in touch with him by phone and explained that I was interested in covering the story. PJ graciously accepted my wishes and invited me to come out Gurney’s to check it out for myself.

With excitement, I rallied out to Montauk to once again get an up-close-and-personal encounter with the Montauk Monster. Upon arrival at Gurney’s Inn, PJ introduced me to his friends and his father Paul Monte. (General Manager, Gurney’s Inn) Paul Monte led the way as I was taken to a remote part of the property to witness the beast again with my own eyes.

The monster was removed from an ice-filled enclosure and laid out for all to view. The stench this time was so horrific it triggered my gag reflex and I was forced to take a step back. PJ and the crew lifted their shirts over their noses for relief from the rotting stench.

Sure enough, we were all looking at a very similar creature that has now washed up for the fourth documented time by photograph. For those who’ve doubted my discoveries, (Geraldo Rivera, Doug Kennedy) please note that I was with company who have openly revealed themselves and are willing to discuss this incident further.

After the viewing session we loaded the carcass back into the ice-filled enclosure for safe keeping. PJ Monte had to make an early exit as he was on his way to a party that evening in the Hamptons. My discussions with Paul Monte continued with his assistant Kon in an office located on the premises. Paul Monte agreed to run the pictures taken earlier that evening by his son PJ Monte as a exclusive.

What’s most disturbing about this discovery is that PJ and Paul’s last name is Monte sharing the well-known nickname for the Montauk Monster, “Monty”. Is this a coincidence or possibly the coming of the apocalypse? In a private conversation with PJ Monte, I mentioned that I had a premonition that our paths would be crossing by the way of the Montauk Monster. Being that this was the first time we had met, I think he was slightly freaked out by that remark. Nonetheless, I had to get that off my chest.

Additionally, the couple who contacted me in May (Monster found in Southhold, NY) made claims that while the dead carcass was in their backyard, (in an ice-filled cooler) the wife had terrible nightmares. They still wish to remain anonymous as the husband disposed of the carcass on a boat ride to Block Island to put his wife at ease. In fear of public humiliation, they wish to keep their identity unknown.

I’m still convinced these creatures are washing up from Plum Island. What do you think?

Montauk Monster Kidnapped! (New Video)

Monday, May 25th, 2009

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend. As we now move into the summer, (monster season!) I encourage Long Islander’s to keep an eye out for any unidentified beasts washing up on the coasts of Long Island. If you find something that resembles the Montauk Monster (bloated, beak skull, leathery gray skin, and weird patches of hair) e-mail us, and we’ll investigate the situation.

Please review our latest video below that was uploaded to YouTube this evening. Please be advised that the film contains graphic content and might not be appropriate for children. As I’ve mentioned previously, the couple who contacted us insisted that they take the Montauk Monster home with them. As we started snapping photo’s it became a “finder’s keepers” situation where the couple believed that the dead carcass could be “worth something”.

Upon reaching this decision, the husband ran home and got an empty box and lined it with a white garbage bag to place the beast into. I very liberally used the phrase “kidnapping” twice during the video clip. I’ll admit I was being dramatic and this was technically a “monster-napping” as there were no children involved. More importantly, the carcass had been taken into custody by the couple and no authorities were contacted.

The couple took the bag with them, placed it in their trunk, and put the bag containing the carcass into a cooler full of ice upon arriving home. Please review the video below and witness our farewell to the Montauk Monster.

Would you take this creature off the beach if you found it? Comment here.

Montauk Monster 2.0 (New Pictures!)

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

It’s been quite a week for us here at! First, I’d like to thank our loyal readers for providing many thought provoking comments about their theories of what the Montauk Monster might be. At this time, we do not have conclusive evidence as to what specific species the bloated carcass is. Yes, there are skeptics out there. Many ask does this even exist? Is this a hoax? Could this be viral marketing?

Please understand that the pictures below (new!) show angles in addition to the shots widely seen earlier this week. I can assure you this is not a hoax as I witnessed the beast with my own eyes and took the photographs below. Additionally, there were three other people present with me when we came up-close and personal with the Montauk Monster. In regards to viral marketing, the only thing that has turned viral is the questions and concerns around what’s washing up on the shores of Long Island, NY. If “Montauk Monster Mania” is the bi-product of deep questioning about the creatures origins, (read our comments section!) so be it. I think we all have a right to know what’s going on here.

Please review our discovery below:

I still believe that the creature shown above has origins from Plum Island. This is the third occurrence documented by photograph. (Monty 08’, The Clapsaddle Carcass, followed by Montauk Monster 2.0) All beasts have striking similarities. Much like Chupacabra sightings being more frequent in Latin American countries, the Montauk Monster (mutated and bloated carcasses) are being discovered more frequently around Long Island, NY.  In my opinion, the link behind the washed up beasts is Plum Island.

I encourage you to read this article that I found regarding the spread of disease in relation to Plum Island.  Please note that this article was published before our discovery. (Swine Flu Paranoia)

Please understand I’m not trying to point the finger at Plum Island for the Swine Flu epidemic.  Being that animal viruses and diseases (many foreign of nature!) are sometimes not fully-contained in Plum Island’s facility, it’s a fair argument to say that Swine Flu may have leaked from Plum Island.  Additionally, if deer have previously had success leaving Plum Island on a swim to land (carrying ticks with Lyme disease) it’s certainly possible that another “animal” can do the same.     

I’ve taken into consideration that studies at Plum Island are designed to protect the US as “Beastie” might have been created for research purposes against potential viruses or disease.  The proximity to Long Island and the security (contracted!) on  Plum  Island are my only concerns.  Read the down and dirty here.

Everyone has their theories about the Montauk Monster. Some say a “turtle without a shell” (seriously!?) while others claim a cross breed between a pig and dog. Either way, it’s been established that we’re unsure of the species and origin of the Montauk Monster and this matter is certainly worth the time to investigate.

Did this beast come from Plum Island? Comment here.

The Montauk Monster is Found!

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Montauk Monster
Since I started this blog last summer, I’ve dedicated quite a bit of time to debunking all theories presented regarding the Montauk Monster. Was it a dog? Was it a pig? A viral marketing ploy? Honestly, it really doesn’t matter at this point as the original carcass was stolen and later disintegrated into a “ball of goo”.

On Wednesday May 5th 2009, I was contacted by a couple that sent a message to the general e-mail box on this website claiming they think they’ve found what appears to be the Montauk Monster. Naturally, I questioned it thinking it was BS, but they seemed credible enough (after a phone conversation of course) to take an hour drive to Southold and see it for myself up close and personal.

Upon discovery, it resembled what everyone saw last summer. This monster was located in Southold, NY on the Bay Area. For those who are unfamiliar with the area, this is the North Fork of Long Island. 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.

The couple who tipped me off loaded the carcass into a garbage bag and took it home with them. We’ve been in correspondence numerous times and have agreed that for the remainder of the week, we’d keep this matter to ourselves. The remains are currently located in Southold in a cooler full of ice.

I wanted to think about the best way to expose this to the public. Since I own this medium, and have a genuine interest in the subject matter, I’d like to be the first to share this you. We did not contact any authorities as from previous experiences; the carcass has been taken from the finders or mysteriously “stolen”. If this is a genetic mishap from Plum Island, we’d like to sell the remains to an independent lab for study. It has become a race against the clock as the couple who originally found “Beastie” are diligently putting more ice into the cooler to keep the carcass fresh.

Also, I’ve thought about the possibilities that this carcass may be carrying H1N1 influenza. (The Swine Flu) Sorry, my mind is racing now, but I haven’t ruled out biological warfare on this yet. A diseased carcass floating in waterways around Long Island could be infecting the water, fish, etc. We still need to remember that Plum Island is where Lyme Disease originated, it’s really not too far fetched to believe that this carcass (if from Plum Island) could be carrying bacteria or disease.

Here is a video clip of our discovery:

After viewing this video above, please keep in mind that my intentions are not waste your time with a recreation of the Blair Witch Project. This video was taken at night on the beach where the monster was found. (Founder’s Landing Park, Southold NY)

I would like your honest opinion even you tell me “it’s a dog!” My intentions from the beginning have been to inform my readers of “The Truth, The Legend, and The Mystery” behind The Montauk Monster, a 2008 phenomenon. Additionally, I’m not interested in going on the Geraldo Rivera show like my buddy Mike did last summer as an eyewitness. It’s a tempting offer taking a limousine full of champagne sent by Geraldo to a TV studio, but I’ll take this time now to politely decline.

Here’s the deal:

I’m only interested in dealing with publications who have a genuine interest in this story, or have previously covered the Montauk Monster. I’m not looking to waste my time or the media’s. I have over 70 high quality pictures that I took personally from a Lumix digital camera (14.7 megapixels) which includes close-ups and multiple angles of The Montauk Monster.

If your publication is interested in obtaining exclusive pictures of The Montauk Monster or would like to interview Nicky Papers (yours truly!) please e-mail us. Local laboratories and independent research firms I encourage to contact us as well as we’d like to receive conclusive results as to what the Montauk Monster really is.

What do you think this monster is? Comment here.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Nicky Papers

Montauk Monster Oil Painting

Monday, March 16th, 2009

This is the first original work of art I’ve seen dedicated to the Montauk Monster. This piece of art was created using oil-based paint on masonite.

Hey, for $156 this could be yours! I must admit this would look great in my office but the size of the piece (9.8in x 9.8in) just doesn’t work for me. I found it fascinating that this painting ships from the Czech Republic, consequently making beastie an international superstar!

The Montauk Monster Carries Lyme Disease?

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

I found this YouTube video interesting for a few reasons. It was posted by “”. (A team of health & fitness experts dedicated to YOU!) This video features a gentleman discussing his theories behind the Montauk Monster and it’s correlations to Lyme Disease.

He starts off adjusting his camera while riding a bicycle and discussing how he was trying to pick up a girl who works at a vets office. (A really passionate animal rights activist!) The conversation transpired into one about the Montauk Monster and the history of Lyme Disease.

My thoughts on this clip:

1) Great synopsis on the history of Lyme Disease. People are not aware of it’s Plum Island origin.
2) Great eye contact while riding the bike. (No crashes!)
3) Peddle slower, there is no need to get out of breath during a video editorial.

Do you think the handlers of the Montauk Monster are at risk for Lyme Disease?

Montauk Monster Short Film

Friday, February 20th, 2009

In the summer of 2008 a group of teenagers went on vacation in Montauk. This video captures the events during their vacation and their interaction with the beast commonly known as “The Montauk Monster.”

The quality is questionable and the acting is a bit cheesy, I’m curious to gather others thoughts on that.

God bless America, and God bless YouTube. Enjoy : )

A Message from Dudley Cates.

Monday, February 16th, 2009

Below is an e-mail I received from Dudley Cates. He probably didn’t want me to share this with the world but I felt this would be necessary and proper. I haven’t posted in a while and I’ve been holding onto this so I will be sharing this in it’s entirety.

Please see the message below:

Hi Nicky,

My name is Dudley Cates. Thank you for your great site. How else would I know about the Moscow Monster and the big cat? I don’t mean to be opportunistic (or greedy), but things being the way they are for me right now I can’t afford to give this story away without being compensated. A close family relation of a super-celebrity (in other words, anyone who was born in this country and is alive today has heardof this movie and televisoin actor) stumbled upon a new Montauk Monster carcass and took at least one very clear picture of it. The story and the picture were both printed in a local weekly paper, but the story never got picked up by any bigger papers or other media outlets. I am personal friends with the reporter who broke the story, who is also personal friends with the celebrity’s relative and close friend. Because my friend, the reporter, didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, she didn’t tell the media about the celebrity connection. My friend asked the spouse of this celebrity’s other close family relation to gather the carcass from the beach, and he agreed to do it. In stead, he claims that he threw it back into the water (which I don’t believe…this beach is on his sister-in-law’s property, the water is calm, and who wants a rotting carcass sitting in calm water when there are children around?) I suppose we’ll never know what happened to the carcass, but this all smacks of a coverup. They live in a very exclusive neighborhood and didn’t want the publicity. I am trying to sell the story (along with my interview with an east end doctor who claims to have found two “German-shepherd sized” carcasses over the past two years while jogging in the morning) to a tabloid newspaper, but I’m pretty unfamiliar with how one goes about negotiating while not giving away what I believe to be valuable. The guy on the phone at the National Enquirer story submission desk wants the celebrity’s name up-front, and I’m reluctant to give it away. Is there a chance you’d pay me for the story (plus the’s public domain but you probably couldn’t find it without my help) I could very well make some enemies in powerful circles but since I know it’s the truth and it’s not particularly injurious to any party (except possibly to the person who threw away the carcass…obviously a vested interest in squashing the story there) I want the story to get out. Looking forward to your reply.


Is this guy serious?

Sorry Dudley, no deal brother.
