The Gurney’s Inn Montauk Monster: Revisited

Monday, September 21st, 2009

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:

(BREAKING NEWS: Montauk Monster found at Gurney’s Inn)

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.

Taxidermist preserves the remains of a Chupacabra-like animal in Texas.

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

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!

Montauk Monster Cartoon Released on YouTube.com

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

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!

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 Montauk-Monster.com 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 Montauk-Monster.com! 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.

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,
