The Gurney’s Inn Montauk Monster: Revisited

Monday, September 21st, 2009

While doing some maintenance on 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 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.
