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,

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 : )

The Montauk Monster: Listed On Wikipedia.

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

The Montauk Monster has been loaded as a current event on Wikipedia. The information below may be incomplete, or may change as the event progresses.

The Montauk Monster is a creature with a “dinosaur beak” which allegedly washed ashore dead in Ditch Plains, near Montauk, New York in late July 2008.

Speculation in published reports included theories that the Montauk Monster may be a turtle without its shell—even though the shell of a turtle cannot be removed without damaging the turtle—a dog, a raccoon, or perhaps a science experiment from the nearby government animal testing facility, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center. The “monster” may also be a decomposed pig carcass. The creature’s appearance may have been altered through immersion in water for an extended period before coming to rest on the shore, making it difficult to identify.

Because the body is not available for study, and is only shown in photos taken by the locals who discovered it, this may be a photo-shopped image or part of a viral marketing campaign. A new picture of the creature has also been shown on the news and Internet. Animal Expert Jeff Corwin has appeared on Fox News and claimed that upon close inspection of the photograph, he feels sure the “monster” is merely a raccoon or dog that has decomposed slightly.

William Wise, director of Stony Brook University’s Living Marine Resources Institute, interpreted the photo along with a colleague, and suggested it was a hoax after discounting the following possibilities:

• Raccoon. (“The legs appear to be too long in proportion to the body.”)
• Sea turtle. (“Sea turtles do not have teeth.”)
• Rodent. (“Rodents have two huge, curved incisor teeth.”)
• Dog or other canine.(“Prominent eye ridge and the feet” don’t match.)
• Sheep. (Sheep don’t have sharp teeth).

The father of the woman who took the photo that spawned the speculation told a reporter that reports that his daughter was holding out to the highest bidder to make some cash were “nonsense.” An unidentified woman told the same reporter that the animal was only the size of a cat, and as of August 2008 was decomposed to a skeleton, but would not identify its location for inspection.

On August 1, Gawker published pictures and x-rays of a Rakali (or Water Rat, Hydromys chrysogaster) showing several convincing similarities with the Montauk Monster: the “beak”, tail, feet, size, and general appearance similar. The Rakali originates from Australia.

Posed Theories

Below is a list of proposed real-world animals that would seem to match with what the “monster” may have been before decomposing due to sea water. Some animals would seem to make more sense than others, such as a pig carcass over a turtle, while the probability of a fraud is always present. All reasonable possibilities have been listed.

• Cougar/Mountain Lion
• Wild Pig
• Dog/Wolf
• Water Rat
• Raccoon
• Sea Turtle
• Viral marketing fraud
