Yesterday we received three graphic photos of this above creature on the shore of the East River. Our tipster wrote, "Is this another incarnation of the Montauk Monster, or just the biggest rat in the city?" The animal was under the Brooklyn Bridge on the Manhattan side, and was "maybe two feet, a bit more perhaps, head to tail."

The first reported "Montauk Monster" was spotted in 2008, and since then some more similar animals have washed up in different locations, and with each one new theories are tossed around: a turtle without its shell, a raccoon, a dog, a pig, movie props, lab tested animal from Plum Island, and so on.

Of course, the government (and annoying rational people) would like the public to believe that each of these washed up "monsters" are just dead bloated animals. But our source in the comments section of tells us this photo clearly shows a R.O.U.S. that drowned during the Giant Mutant Urban Rat Army's special skills swimming test. Our future overlords are clearly honing their skills before they follow through with Phase IV of their takeover plan, and we wouldn't doubt if they were behind the leaked photos of giant rats that have gone viral in recent months.
