Man Finds Mysterious Stinking Furry Creature With Flippers Washed Up On Beach

Man Finds Mysterious Stinking Furry Creature With Flippers Washed Up On Beach

Gather 'round folks, it's time to play Gordon Ramsay's favourite game: 'What the f*** is that?'

The mysterious creature we're trying to identify was found washed up on Ainsdale Beach, in Merseyside, UK, on Wednesday (29 July).

The bloke who found it - who wishes to remain anonymous - described it as 'the strangest thing I've ever seen', and I for one am relieved he has never seen anything stranger.

At first glance it looks maybe like it's a horse, but then it apparently has flippers, and wait - is that a tusk?

Explaining what exactly he saw before him, the man who found the creature told LADbible: "It had four flippers which made it look most weird. And it was furry.

"Approximately 15ft long and bones sticking out everywhere, approx 4ft long some of them. Stunk too.

"It looked like it had an extra thing attached to it, maybe it was giving birth and died."

Pushed on what he thought it might be, he said it looked 'like a half whale that had eaten a horse whilst giving birth to a snake'.

This may seem an unlikely explanation, but he was there, and at this stage it's about as good a theory as we have.

Keen to gauge public opinion, he shared the pictures in Ainsdale Community Group Facebook page and asked locals what they thought it might be.

One person said: "A woolly mammoth? *yes I'm aware they're extinct but honestly what it looks like to me!"

Another said: "The way 2020 is going it could be a dinosaur."

A third added: "Donkey or mule? It has hooves but doesn't have a long enough neck for a horse and head seems too big in proportion to the neck."

Of that selection of suggestions, a donkey seems most likely, but still very unlikely - after all, it apparently had flippers.

Then again, it seems to also have hooves too - and as far as I'm aware there isn't a known animal that has both.

LADbible has contacted the Marine Conservation Society for a considerably more educated guess, but until we hear back from them I'm saying it is a walrus.

Whether walruses frequent Merseyside much, I don't know, but at the moment uneducated guesses are all we have.
