Mystery Creature Washes Ashore in Seal Beach

SEAL BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) -- An unidentified creature was discovered Wednesday by a woman taking her daily walk along the shore in Seal Beach.

Karen Summers says she animal corpse didn't look like anything she had ever witnessed.

She called officials from the Public Works Department, who arrived Friday morning and disposed of the unidentified animal.

Summers says the workers couldn't identify the remains either.

The discovery is reminiscent of the so-called "Montauk Monster," an unidentified creature that allegedly washed up on a beach near the business district of Montauk, New York in July 2008.
