That was an interesting post, and while the badger theory is a good 'un, I agree with the vet's analysis -- it's a pit bull.

Y'know, when all the debating's over, I felt sad for the poor creature.

I was thinking about this as we drove back out of town this evening (because there was damn-all else to do except watch West Hampstead and Golders Green go by in the rain) and it suddenly occurred to me - and I'm not making this up - that I've seen that face before somewhere, and I'm damned if I can remember where.
When Selkie mailed me the link last night I said it wsn't a raccoon because the shape of the face was all wrong, but since then I've been looking at photos of raccoon skulls (ain't teh intarwebs great?) and I think I may have been wrong. It's a pity there's no proper close-up of the face.
Meanwhile over at Plum TV the ever-so-slightly fey Nick Leighton interviews the three Hamptons hotties who found and photographed the Creature, with more stuff from Plum here.
Meanwhile, the best (in the sense that there's more of it, rather in the editorial sense) article I could find online comes from Fox News.
The fact that the remains were whisked away by a friend of the Hampton hotties suggests they all know what it is and want to keep the story going as long as possible. If you really wanted to know what it was, wouldn't you just hand it over to your friendly neighbourhood scientist? I leave it to you to riddle their motives.
But until then, here's Wikipedia's hyperlinked list of cryptids, which is literally a good half hour or more of innocent fun.
And I agree with Mike. I feel sorry for the poor thing too, whatever it is.
And do you know, I haven't seen Thog lately either. And that first description sounds an awful lot like him in his youth...
