    The creature from the deep

    THE body of a mysterious creature with fearsome teeth, thick black fur and a rat-like tail has been dragged from a lake.
    The hideous beast was discovered by two horrified nurses after their dog Sam pulled it from the murky water.

    The gruesome animal has baffled experts and triggered speculation that it could be similar to the famous "Montauk monster", which was washed up in New York two years ago.

    Pictures were posted on a local website after nurses Joseph Murrillo and Kelly Hick found the unidentified creature while they were hiking on the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug reservation in Canada.

    The mutant animal is bald on its face, head and feet and has tusk-like teeth.

    The grisly online snaps came with an explanation that read: "The dog jumped in the lake and pulled the creature to the rocks and dragged it out for the hikers to see and these are the photos they took.

    "The creature's tail is like a rat's tail and it is a foot long."

    Bloggers have now been speculating about what the animal is. Some have suggested that it looks similar to an otter with the face of a boar-like animal.

    One posted online: "There are experienced hunters that have been around for decades. They have 'trap lines' which refer to as hunting grounds. And in all these years they have never seen anything like this."

    Another said: "That certainly is a face only a mother can love. It looks like some sort of otter, weasel-type thing."

    It has been compared to the monster found in Montauk in 2008. It was never officially identified.

    This just proves that no matter how wonderful we people think we are, and how we profess to know all there is to know about our wonderful world, Mother Earth will always always prove us wrong by allowing a glimpse of other wonderful creatures we may never learn about in our time. I just hope that there are other weird and wonderful creatures we can learn from.... Every living thing on this planet deserves to be here, maybe more so because they've been here longer who knows :)

    I just hope it died of a natural death, unlike the unknown creature in panama that was stoned to death by kids :( we fear what we don't understand, how sad is that!
