Just as I was beginning to lose hope that we would get a good unidentified ‘monster’ story this summer, along comes this one!

When Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials received a picture of the roadkill from Alexandria, Minn., this week, it wasn’t clear what it was.

Lacey Ilse said she was driving near her home on County Road 86, south of Alexandria, when she spotted the mysterious mammal.

“We saw something in the middle of the road, and we knew it wasn’t a dog or a cat, because it didn’t have hair. It had a clump of hair and all the rest was just white skin,” Ilse said.”it’s ear was all mis-shaped. To me, it looked like half-human.”

Ilse said she soon posted pictures of the animal on Facebook, and rumors and speculation took off.

“It just shot out like wildfire. everybody was putting it on their Facebook pages. And then, their friends were putting it on their pages,” she said.

The mystery animal was ghostly white and hairless, its neck bloated out of proportion with the rest of its limp body.

There were five front toes with long nails, so it most likely wasn’t a dog. Several employees, working off the picture, concluded it was a badger.

“If you look at the picture, it is weird-looking,” said Jason Abraham, a fur-bearer specialist with the DNR. “If there were four or five of these found on the road, we might have a bit more interest.”

“The head suggests a canine, very likely a domestic dog,” Abraham said. “However, the right front foot appears to have five toes, which is not typical for canines. Also, the long toenails are not typical for an active canine.”

The badger, assuming that’s what it was, probably lost its hair during the decomposition process, Abraham said. The animal most likely lived in Minnesota, although the species is more commonly found in Wisconsin.

Folks in Alexandria Wednesday had their own ideas.

“First guess was a badger with like, a case of mange. But then, some other people were saying, like a chupacabra. and after looking at some pictures, I was like, ‘you know, it’s possible,” Jones said.

“It kinda looks like a 10-year-old wolf,” Austin Becker of Alexandria said.

“Almost looks like a pig, with paws? I don’t know, or a wolf,” Kaitlin Van Horn of Morris said.

In 2006, residents of the North Shore were perplexed by a hairless animal roaming the woods. It turned out to be a timberwolf with mange.

Something strange washed up on the shore of a remote village in Alaska.

A mysterious orange-colored substance mysteriously appeared on the surface of the water in Kivalina (KIV’-uh-LEE’-nuh).

Tests have already been conducted on the substance, but so far there has not been any results.

City Administrator Janet Mitchell told The Associated Press that the substance has also shown up in some residents’ rain buckets.

Coast Guard Petty Officer David Mosely tells KTUU that it’s not a petroleum substance and it’s not man-made. Mitchell says the village is requesting that an algae expert from the University of Alaska Fairbanks investigate.

Pictures taken by resident Mida Swan show an orange sheen across the harbor and on beaches in the village about 625 miles northwest of Anchorage.

Swan says she didn’t smell anything odd when she dipped her hand into the substance.

We have yet another story of a ‘sea monster’ body washing up on a beach.

A couple were left shocked when they discovered the rotting body of a sea monster while walking along a beach near Aberdeen, UK.

Mr Flippence, 59, who lives nearby, said: ‘We were stunned. I thought, “oh my God what is it?”

Scientists believe that the carcass is of a rotting pilot whale or perhaps killer whale. In most cases, the answer to these strange finds is almost certainly mundane.

So, do sea monsters REALLY exist?

I believe that there may certainly be large sea creatures living in the depths which we don’t know about. Remember that we have explored only a very tiny percentage of the ocean and discover new species almost daily.

I guess it all depends on what you mean by ‘monster’.

Very cool montage made from a number of compelling videos taken of UFO activity over 2010 and 2011.

Are these fake images, explainable phenomena, false flags or could some of them possibly be evidence of real extraterrestrial activity?
