Strange Creature Found on Santa Barbara Beach
A strange creature washed ashore on a Santa Barbara, California beach. The find came after a recent storm hit the area. As you can see from the image the creature is hairless and has long claws and long teeth. It is reminiscent of the Montauk Monster and other related animal finds. All of these animals appeared very strange but resemble known animals with no hair. Remove the hair from any furry mammal and they are bound to look a little strange. I think that is the case here as well. To me this looks like a chubby dog with its hair removed. Prolonged salt water immersion may account for the hair removal. Bloating after death may also account for the chubby appearance. Several experts quoted in the original story say Badger, but that seems a little strange considering the location. Maybe it was brought in from another area? You can read the original story here.
