'Montauk Monster' witnesses emerge

Joye Brown August 1, 2008

This picture of a "sea creature" from, which allegedly washed up on a beach in Montauk in July 2008, has created an Internet sensation.

Quick. Grab something. It's time to slay the Montauk Monster.

That was the idea at the beginning of the day, when we set a colleague, Robert Wargas, out on his monster mystery hunt.

The results? We'll get to that later. But first, let's dish out some reality.

A. Something really did wash up in Montauk, one sunny day, two weeks ago.

B. More than four people saw it.

C. More than one person photographed it.

The surf was rough, flipping the thing, over and over, and over again.

Jenna Hewitt, of Montauk, and three friends crept up to examine one side. And Hewitt snapped the camera shot heard 'round the world.

But here's the rub.

Her group was the second on the scene that afternoon.

The first was a quartet of sun-worshipers from western Suffolk and New York City.

"It looked like nothing I'd ever seen before," said Ryan O'Shea, of Brooklyn. "It looked like it died angry."

They were so puzzled by what they saw, they left and came right back, with more friends.

The second time around, Christina Pampalone, of East Northport, borrowed O'Shea's camera. She aimed and kept on firing.

The result is lots of -- ew -- gross photos of a carcass that looks more domestic than exotic, a bloated dog, not the Hound from Hell.

It shows ears. A big swatch of fur. And its proportions appear to be less distorted -- making the head appear to be a suitable complement to the body.

"I was telling people, all day (Wednesday), that I had better photos," Pampalone said.

"Everybody I showed her pictures to said it looks like a dead dog," O'Shea said.

"But looking at the claws, and at the teeth in the front, it looked like it could be something else, something vicious."

It was relatively small, roughly 21/2 to 3 feet long, he said.,0,5138315.column?page=2
