The Monster of Missouri – (NEW SIGHTING!)

June 8th, 2010

It’s come to my attention that a hideous creature has been discovered in St. Josephs Missouri by a woman walking her dog. I had let our subscribers know about this discovery by e-mail before disclosing this publically. I strongly encourage you to subscribe to my free newsletter to learn about these happenings before the media does!

I’ve dedicated my time to learning more about the creatures that have been washing up on Long Island and more recently Canada, (“The Ugly One”) the latest “Missouri Monster” is one scary looking creature!

The head is elongated much like an alligator or crocodile, yet the body is very muscular (holy biceps!) The creature was found on land (dead) in the classic Montauk Monster “crime scene” pose.

As the person who took this picture would like to remain anonymous, I continue to wonder what this creature is. People frequently ask: “how do you find out about these things?”, “why didn’t the people call the police?”, and “are you making this stuff up?”

As we head into our third season, I’d like to address the following points:

1) This blog can be found easily on search engines. I’ve received hundreds of e-mails from people around the world that have found “weird creatures”. I use my discretion when selecting which images I choose to feature and appreciate all legitimate tips and correspondence submitted by my readers.

2) In all seriousness, what are the police going to do? For whatever reason, the finders of the dead animals generally think that carcass is worth something. (i.e. sell the remains on eBay?) While the finders may have dollar sign eyes, “new media sources” are the one’s cashing in. Having a slow news day? Cash in on cryptozoology!

3) No I am not making this stuff up. (The Boy Who Cried Monster?) As an independent journalist who has been featured on numerous legitimate and well-known media publications, I take pride in covering this story. For students that use this blog for research projects, I have a responsibility to present the facts in a way that’s truthful and unbiased. Just because it’s entertaining, doesn’t mean that I have a hidden agenda.

In closing, I would like to thank my audience for remaining supportive since 2008 and providing feedback and insight to one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

Warm regards,

“The Ugly One” – Canadian Monster Stirs a Buzz

May 25th, 2010

This creature was found by a pair of “dog walkers” in a Northern Ontario creek last week. As I’ve been following the story closely and gathering the facts, a few questions still remained unanswered:

1) Why have the “First Nations” (Canadian community) taken an active role in learning more about the creature as US citizens have let the Montauk Monster remain a “mystery”?

2) The creature was found by “two nurses” who work for the Canadian Federal Government. They posted the picture on their community website where it later went viral. Why put your job on the line?

3) If this creature was never meant to be discovered, (especially by government officials!) shouldn’t this have been swept under the rug?

4) Where is the animal carcass? Once again, “the monster” has disappeared.

Members of the Canadian community claim: “No one knows what it is, but our ancestors used to call it the Ugly One,” the Kitchenuhmaykoosib website says. “Rarely seen, but when seen, it’s a bad omen. Something bad will happen, according to our ancestors.”

    Montauk Monster Video Testimonial

    April 19th, 2010

    Well I couldn’t have said it better myself!  I’d like to thank Jake for his candid review of With the weather getting warmer on Long Island, there is a strong chance that another mysterious creature will wash up again. As many people will find themselves walking their dogs on the beach or relaxing with friends and family on the East End of Long Island, please be aware of your surroundings.

    Likewise with the Montauk Monster discoveries of both 2008 and 2009, I strongly encourage anyone who may find a mysterious or odd looking creature washed up on the beach to contact immediately. The Montauk Monster has “mysteriously” disappeared after authorities have been contacted on every occasion the media has brought attention to it. It’s my mission to ensure a situation like that will not happen again.

    In the words of the MTA, (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) “If you see something, say something.” I’ve made a commitment to shedding light on this conspiracy and providing an explanation to one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Stay tuned.

    Warm regards,

    Plum Island Is Now For Sale!

    March 22nd, 2010

    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? via Animal New York

    The 2010 Montauk Monster Season Has Begun!

    March 14th, 2010

    Greetings! After a short hiatus over the winter, is back and dedicated to solving the mysteries behind the Montauk Monster. As many people are still skeptical about the origin of the washed-up creatures and what they really are, (species?) I can assure you that these creatures do in fact exist as they’ve washed up on several occasions.

    Much like the previous two seasons, I’ll be covering all Montauk Monster news and updates for our readers. Additionally, I’ll be spending more time focusing on obtaining interviews from several eye witnesses who will describe and verify what they have seen during up close and personal encounters with the Montauk Monster.

    I strongly encourage our readers to subscribe to our mailing list as I will be releasing never before seen pictures of the Montauk Monster in addition to all breaking news and updates. In the meantime, I will be presenting various facts about the Montauk Monster that further verify its origins and elaborate on the theories that have been previously presented.

    At this time, I’d like to thank the supporters of this blog and the readers who’ve informed us of the various Montauk Monster sightings on Long Island beaches. Simply put, I understand that my commitment and dedication to this blog is important. The more people that are aware of the Montauk Monster, the easier it will be to identify what it really is the next time it washes up.

    As my efforts in independent journalism have not gone unnoticed, the coverage we’ve received in 2009 has greatly helped our cause in identifying the Montauk Monster and the areas of which the carcasses are washing up.

    I appreciate everyone’s kind words, support, and theories. Let’s keep the positive momentum going!

    Best regards,

    The Gurney’s Inn Montauk Monster: Revisited

    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.

    See below:

    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.

    Terrified Teens Beat “NEW” Montauk Monster to Death in Panama

    September 17th, 2009

    As the summer season has officially ended, the Montauk Monster (and another weird creature?) has apparently migrated south for the winter. According to reports in Panama, a group of teenagers discovered a bloated, hairless, and rubbery animal (or alien?) corpse that has a striking resemblance to the the still un-identified Montauk Monster that was discovered on Long Island, NY beaches on multiple occasions.

    The group of teenagers spotted the creature crawling out of a cave while playing in the town of Cerro Azul just north of Panama City. The group of friends feared for their safety as the creature approached them. To ensure their safety, they attacked the beast with sticks and rocks. After beating the creature into submission they threw its lifeless body into a pool of water to make sure it was dead after drowning the body.

    The teenagers shortly returned to the area of the drowned beast with a camera to take pictures of the corpse. Later that day, the pictures were posted on the Central American country’s Telemetro television station.

    Speculation has now reached levels where people are saying that the creature may be from another planet. I am not sure what type of creature it is, but one must remember that it was initially discovered coming out of a cave. The color of its skin (light colored pigment) indicates to me that the creature dwells in the dark or under water as it does not have color from the sun. It appears bloated much like the Montauk Monster, but what ‘s most disturbing is that the teenagers said it was alive when they found it.

    Once again, the million dollar question is: Where are the remains of the bloated corpse? Studies on this creature could provide us with many answers, additionally giving people the proper protocol to adhere to when cryptids are found in the wild.

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

    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

    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!
