For a second time is less than a year, an alleged corpse of something being called the Montauk Monster has washed ashore on a New York beach. Some say it may have originated in some secret animal lab on nearby Plum Island, where the U.S. Government does in fact run an Animal Disease Center.
The purpose of this animal disease research clinic exists statedly to prevent the outbreak of communicable animal diseases such as foot & mouth disease in cattle, to study such diseases and be on the forefront of immunization against such outbreaks. They cite keeping animal food sources (including deer) free of contagious diseases… good luck capturing an immunizing a wild deer! Use a dart rifle? Would be difficult to know which deer have been inoculated and let’s hope that this isn’t being done from helicopters, causing the injection dart to be subsequently shaken off in the woods and be just lying about. –A used syringe with traces of immunization-chemicals and possibly also infected deer blood on it. Never mind syringes washing-up on shore now… they’ll be in the woods on the forest floor. Nice..

Other than aiming to prevent the outbreak of communicable animal contagions, this Plum Island Animal Disease Center web site does not divulge too much more of their work. This is typical of a government agency, really. -Just the facts. Their site says that an outbreak of hoof & mouth disease for instance would cause our exported beef be rejected by foreign markets, hurting our economy and causing local/national retailers to raise their prices to recoup their financial loss. OMG –I smell cover-up! It is the old ‘the bottom line is this; we do good things to benefit you.’ Usually using ‘the bottom line’ expression at least once implies ‘we don’t want to discuss it further.’ Still, it is better than simply stating “no comment” when dealing with sufficiently aroused and highly suspicious public.
Is the Plum Island Animal Disease Center responsible for the so-called Montauk Monster? Did they create it, are they even studying this or is this something they are already aware of and are trying to cure? What is this monster? Experiment #6-2-6, I say. Oh wait, that designation is for the Disney creation “Stitch” from the 2002 movie “Lilo & Stitch.” And he turned out to be a really cute little fella.
