Just in: another strange carcass found on a beach; this time in Gisbourne, North Island, New Zealand.
It was found a day or so back by bloggo correspondent and doyen of NZ Cryptozoology, Tony Lucas.
You must admit that it looks considerably freakier than the Montauk Monster, with a weird ratlike tail and a fleshy protuberant nose.
In our opinion it is no placental mammal known to science.
This time it certainly ain't a dead racoon that had been given a Viking Burial by a bunch of stoned surfers. It was, by the way "about the size of a fox terrier" says Tony.
Watch this space. More later....
