Not a monster.

Just a big rat.

Insert funny union joke.

Now that's wierd. It looks like a dog, but then again it doesn't....so I have no clue/

Is that an extra piece of skin on it's right side? What is that?

ETA: Is it just me or does it look like it has a belly button?

Michael Bloomberg is RIGHT! Look what those 20oz sodas are doing to the rat population! Time to get that ban into place . . . .

Nope. Those are definitely not rat's teeth. They have two incisor-thingies on their lower jaw which act like scissors.

It's a hairless racoon.
Just like the original Montaulk monster.

Hey, that looks like Jimmy Hoffa Jr..!

A fitting demise for a son of corruption!

(I wanted to add even more political opportunism here, but nahhhh...)

Has anyone tried poking it with a stick, or something?

I'll give it two to one odds that's it's a huge rat, bloated from decomposition.

New York makes those suckers big.

By the second picture posted....


We have an approximate size of this creature. The railroad tie behind it is approximately 8 inches thick. having this measurement and seeing that it is only about half that, this creature is about 4 inches thick. Knowing this, we can guesstimate it to be about 10 inches from butt to nose, which is consistent with a common adult rat. It was in the water for however long which accounts for the bloating and disfigurement as well as fur loss, as water bloating can release the follicles. I would venture to say that it is nothing more than a bloated decomposing rat, although it does have the appearance of a hideous monster in this form.

Edit to add: from the OPs source....

UPDATE: While a spokesperson for the Parks Department believes the animal was a "cooked pig"-- of which the Department's since disposed-- Paul Curtis, an animal expert told Gothamist:


The parks department is insane in the membrane they should go back to MickyDs. Where do they get these people?

Cooked pigs feet...


Creatures feet.....
