Locals in a remote Canadian town are baffled by the discovery of a mystery monster which washed up on the shore of a lake.
The hideous beast was discovered by two horrified nurses after their dog Sam pulled it from the murky water.
Photos of the animal have prompted a flurry of speculation in the small town and around the internet as to what it could be.
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 beast has been compared to the Montauk Monster, a similar looking animal which washed up on a New York beach in 2008.
