Ocean of Pseudoscience Shorty – The Montauk Monster

The headlines read: “Dead Monster Washes Ashore in Montauk”

So what exactly was this crazy dead thing? Some call it a marketing scheme and no one can deny that it brought attention to the town of Montauk.

Others say it might have been a prank by a local filmmaker to bring attention to his movie. There’s a pretty good understanding of how the story unfolded but no conclusion on how the story started and whether it’s a normal hoax or a hoax of a hoax.

In the end, the actual carcass appears to be a dead, waterlogged raccoon.
