The story so far:
A bizarre creature washed up on Ditch Plains beach near Montauk, New York on July 12.
Local resident Jenna Hewitt took some photos of it. However, the body is now gone. Some guy (unidentified) supposedly has it in his backyard.
In the absence of any evidence except for the photo, there are many theories about what it might be: a sea turtle, a dog, a raccoon missing an upper jaw, a creature from the government's animal-disease lab on Plum Island, or a hoax.
We'll have to wait and see what transpires. Links: Newsday
