An odd creature has apparently washed up on New York’s coast, sparking claims that it may be another so-called “Montauk Monster.”

A similar carcass sparked an online and media frenzy last July after appearing at a popular surfing spot near Montauk, N.Y.

Nicky Papers, who runs a Web site dedicated to the mystery, says he was contacted by a couple on May 5 who “think they’ve found what appears to be the Montauk Monster” on the North Fork of Long Island.

“The beast smelled like a mix of low-tide and rotten garbage,” Papers wrote. “It really smelled horrific. I couldn’t help but take numerous pictures of it and video clips.”

Papers suggested there might be a link between the creature and the nearby Plum Island Animal Disease Center.

“If this is a genetic mishap from Plum Island, we’d like to sell the remains to an independent lab for study,” he wrote on http://www.montauk-monster.com. “It has become a race against the clock as the couple who originally found ‘Beastie’ are diligently putting more ice into the cooler to keep the carcass fresh.”
