The East River monster that washed up on a sparse section of beach underneath the Brooklyn Bridge recently has many New Yorker's confused. Is it a pig? A dog? A mutant rodent?
While the answer isn't clearly visible -- especially since the thing is missing its upper jaw -- it does appear really strange and creepy.
Reminiscent of the Montauk monster, this new monster is similar with no hair and a smooth coat. It also has hoof-less feet, making many believe it's not just a cooked pig as the Parks Dept. said.
"The Parks Dept. was probably very quick to identify it as a pig and dispose of it, but it is most certainly NOT a pig," Denise Ginley, who found the creature and photographed it, said. "The most obvious sign being the lack of a cloven hoof, instead this creature has five digits all close together."
It does look like it could be a pig, but there are reasons it could something else as well.
The creepy, graphic photos will probably not yield and results and most likely there will be no further investigation by the NYC Park Dept. since they said they disposed of the carcass already.
Have you seen the photos of the East River Monster? What do you think it is?
Hopefully, it's nothing more than a one off incident or New Yorker's will be questioning whether or not there are some seriously strange things swimming in the East River!
