Actually someone on the giants board lives by there, and was on the board telling someone about it. Actually interesting to see a picture.

If I had to logically guess I'd say go with that.. But the thing looks like it has a bird beak. But maybe it could be a pitbull that lost, and someone tossed it in. But that thing doesn't not look like 100% dog.

Plum Islands is a government run facility in LI. What are the chances this thing somehow escaped or washed ashore from there?

Ok, very possibly could be a hoax. But on the off-chance that this isn't a hoax, a quick look at the "creature" makes me think it's bipedal. Look at the elbows and shoulders on it. Much more square than a quadruped, more human in the shoulders than animals.

I'll bet it's an alien!

Yeah but the legs look very dog-like, I don't know if they could support something that size upright. It could be an animal capable of bipedal movement at times, though.

Dog, or maybe even mouse/rat. I saw those back legs too and similar to the legs of a dog, but I would say perhaps even moreso a mouse (which I believe is capable of standing on its hindlegs).

I saw this on FOX News last night too. They summed it up as this... An unnamed woman took the picture, where unnamed people took the unnamed creature, to an unnamed location, to be researched by unnamed scientists. That is literally how the anchorlady on FOX News put it last night. They were even interviewing a lady from the TV Network Animal Planet.

CJSchneider

Easily a dog. Much of the nose area is gone, but, this is common in decomposed bodies; that external protrudences (nose, arms, feet) decompose away first as well as are more likely to be "grinded" off, for lack of a better word, when these parts rub against solid surfaces when carried by bottom currents.

Actually I'm a vet tech and I work with animals every day. Looking at the teeth, your right they are dog teeth but the feet don't look like a dogs foot. Maybe it's just the way the pic is taken. Kinda looks like a bull terrier.

Stupid question:

But how come Animal Control or something hasn't taken it off the beach?

It looks like an extremely large Water Rat.

Ummm actually its pretty funny.... It made the news and everything and people just left it there.... Then I guess some guy wanted it so he just picked it up and brought it home.... He wants to hang on his wall.

You almost had me. Look at the anatomical structure of the back legs, if it were a water rat, the paws of the hind legs would be pointing toward the head.

+ rep for comparing it to an actual skeleton though.

If you look at the top view of a Water Rat, it's a little more convincing.

The only thing is that the corpse there is about 5 times larger then the normal Water Rat becomes. I'm not convinced it's a dog with the way the hook on the face is.

Bloating, due to decomposition and being in the water, could explain the
over-size issue. That X-ray was a better example. It also supports the large neck differential, I was also going to point out.

Good job.
