Has the Montauk Monster mystery finally been solved?
FOXNews.com readers will remember the story that gripped the nation last summer — a stinking, hairless carcass washed up on the beach in Montauk, N.Y., part of the Hamptons vacation area.
Some speculated it was an escaped mutant from a government lab. Others thought it was an alien. A few suggested it might be a dog or raccoon.
Now one man has come forward, or at least his friend has, to claim it was all the work of him and his buddies.

The confession was made to a blogger by an unnamed individual. Shortly after the media hub-bub, I thought it looked a lot like a raccoon based on comparing Googled images of a raccoon skull. The so-called "Montauk Monster" was a perfect match, except for some teeth missing.

I wonder why this "unnamed individual" sounds like someone who's just looking for their own 5 minutes of fame?
