What is up with all of the bizarre creatures that have been washing up on beaches all over the world? We all remember the "Montauk Monster" which became so famous so quickly. Since then there have been a number of other unexplained sightings of weird creatures. These sightings are quickly becoming one of the great unexplained mysteries of the world. The latest bizarre creature to make global headlines comes to us from Canada. In Ontario, Canada there is a town called Kitchenuhmaykoosib (yes, that is the real name of the town) a few hundred kilometers south of the Hudson Bay. A couple of local nurses were hiking near a creek when they found that their dog Sam smelled something in the water. The dog went over and pulled the creature (it was only about 30 centimeters long) from the water and the two nurses were able to take some pictures of it. Later, when local residents of the area decided to go back and retrieve the body of this creature, it had disappeared.
Of course it is very frustrating for those of us trying to solve these unexplained mysteries that the bodies of these creatures seem to disappear so often. But the truth is that is what happens to dead animal bodies in the wild. Predators come and drag them away and have a meal. This would be especially true in remote areas such as where Kitchenuhmaykoosib is located.
So what did this creature look like?
Well, experts say that the body of the creature is somewhat similar to an otter, while the face, complete with long fang-like teeth, could possibly be from a boar.
Some members of the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Indian tribe believe that they know what it is. They believe that it is a mythical creature that their elders used to tell them about....
"The elders used to see it a long time ago... No one has seen one for 40 years or so. The elders have a word for it: oomajinakoos. In English, it means ‘the ugly one."
Well, whatever it is, it sure is weird.
So what do you think that it is?
It is simply a decomposing animal?
Is it an example of genetic modification gone wrong?
It it a cross-species chimera?
Is it the result of alien experimentation?
