Sorry if already covered, I did have a quick search, plus my first thread so any mistakes ... my apologies.

This happened in February when the bloated and misshapen carcass of the so-called ‘beast from the east’ was discovered by a dog-walker on a Welsh seafront and pictures were sent in to his local paper, the Western Telegraph in Pembrokeshire.

Linkys below:

it also appeared in the highly credible newspaper (note the sarcasm) The Sun

Really not sure what it could be, but I personally don't think it's anything too sinister.

As noted in one of your linked articles, it looks remarkably similar to a corpse that washed up in the U.S. awhile back. The only thing that really bothers me about it is the fact that people say 'more detailed pictures...' when the handful that are there look pretty darn clear to me, and within a few feet of range.

How much more clear did you want? Or were you looking for someone to take a pic of this side, flip it over and take another, take one from the front, take one from the back?

I know that when I walk MY dog on the beach at 5am, I'm always ready with a giant prop-stick and a ready-to-go camera in case I find a corpse that I simply must prod, poke, flip, and photograph for the rest of the world.

If they say it's a dog, I'll laugh. Staring at the head, I'm wondering WTH kind of dog they could possibly mutate this story into.

Pretty cool find, OP.

Not sure but to me it does look like it could be a bloated dog, the one from a while back looked like a bloated racoon.

i actually agree that more pics would be good - different angles and features like paws, jaw etc in detail would really help.

so far though, it looks to me like someone crossed a badger with a staffie and then shaved it and chucked it in the sea to mature for a while

ETA: someone could have been scared that their pitbull was about to be "outed" and knew they had no further chances in court and drowned/dumped the thing, there are enough callous dog owners out there who have been on the wrong side of the law too often...

gah! we are seemingly over-run with sea monsters!

dog walkers and beach lovers would be advised to carry a stout cudgel - where are scheider, dreyfuss and taylor when you need them?

likewise - some of them can be rather huge after all.

the welsh have form with this kind of thing, that hartlepool "legend" where they hanged a monkey who was washed up from a shipwreck, thinking it was a french spy (so awesome) is also an urban myth in a welsh coastal town. i dont remember which one, but no doubt it had too many l's in the name and required a pint of slobber to say correctly :p

My money is on a badger, teeth look similar. Hair loss could be a result of time at sea or mange. Pretty boring though so i'll go for space octopus.

I was under the impression the montauk monster was a prop from a movie they were filming. If I recall correctly, the person who first showed off the video was a relative, cousin perhaps, to the director of the film that was shooting in Montauk at the time.

Of course a ton of people weighed in on it and, based on photographs, it was deemed to be a raccoon.

I think it's a badger too. It looks like it has 5 toes which a badger has, unlike dogs that have 4 with the fifth being the smaller, placed higher up dewclaw.
The head is elongated and sloping, without a " stop", like a badger, there's some dark fur and some white- ish tufts of fur.
Badgers have a cream colored undercoat on its body and fur long enough to match the longer tufts left on the carcass.
Poor guy!

I can't believe they let it get washed out to sea again.

Don't scientists have any curiosity?

It looks sufficiently weird to bear at least a once-over examination.

Definitely doesn't look like a dog.

And if it is a badger - which it doesn't look like either - why the heck is it washed up on a beach?

Fell off a cliff.

Died in a river and got carried out to sea.

Weird prank by school kids.

Fell into a sewer outlet and got pumped out to sea.

Had accident while surfboarding.

Hope that gives you some possible reasons as to how a badger would end up at sea. I'm really not taking this too seriously, as you can probably tell.

As sarcastically as ever, Michael Merchant of Team Tazer has broken the video down quite well. Looks to be a badger.
Compares the skull shape, and a live badger's head to the corpse's, also circles, lines and arrows. Which are undeniable.

Thanks for interesting replies and the video.
Does seem to be a Badger in my opinion.

posted on Mar, 14 2013 @ 05:44 AM
A generic, already discovered species of animal, drowned with the fur rotted away/fell off in the water. Nothing exciting, as usual.

posted on Mar, 19 2013 @ 12:40 PM
yeah i think there has been a misunderstanding of what that animal actualy is.
