There has been a lot of speculation if the Montauk Monster or “related” creatures have originated from Plum Island. For those who are not familiar with Plum Island, it’s a small island located approximately two miles off the coast of eastern Long Island where deadliest of animal diseases are currently being tested.
With theories running wild as to “what really goes on there”, it seems odd that the federal government is currently looking to sell Plum Island to a private company or owner. The research that is being conducted on Plum Island will continue in Manhattan, Kansas.
The big question: Do you think the series of creatures (and recent dead body!) that washed up in the past two years have influenced the decision to sell? Perhaps the new facility in Kansas is better suited for this type of research. Either way, it’s only been a short period of time since the first Montauk Monster washed up and brought attention to the animal testing facility. What are your thoughts?
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.
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.
