Unknown Monstrous Sea Creature Found on Indian Lands in Canada

Updated on September 21, 2012

The discovery of the body of a strange creature in Toronto (Canada), near a remote Indian reservation has launched an intensive discussion about the identity of the mammal, at the same time has raised concerns that his appearance was "a bad omen." 

People in the reservation Big Trout Lake, located in the northern province of Ontario and is accessible only by air, discovered earlier this month the body of a strange furry creature. The discovery was made by chance when two local nurses (Joseph Hick and Kelly Murrillo ) walking their dog, the animal suddenly jumped into the water of the lake and brought back the corpse of the creature. They took two pictures and left the body on the rocks. Later returning to retrieve it, the creature was no longer there. 

Sea Creatures,Sailors,and Science

Reports of unidentified giant montrous creatures lurking in the deep with photographs to back-up the accounts, are not too rare--in fact they are presented frequently as evidence and believed by many to actually prove that, as in the case of the serpentine Nessy the existence of prehistoric creatures surviving into our present day. These stories alleged by those who have sometimes even found bodies washed ashore, or a bizarre carcass caught in a net by a fisherman--all this is documented by cryptozoologists (scientists/biologists studying unknown animals) who try to bring the mythology and folklore of strange creatures (sighted down through the ages) into the realm of current reality--a reality that skeptics of such things try to deny as hoaxes. But if you encountered or spotted, like many an eyewitness has, some strange,alien, aquatic creature, some prehistoric animal possibly surviving to 2012 you might want to theories that support the idea that the ocean is broad and deep and full of terrible monstrous things that we have yet to identify.


Fear among the Indians


On the website of the community, belonging to indigenous ethnic oji-cree,   the thing was described as a creature about 30 centimeters in length and with "almost human face," which has aroused intense debate over whether it is an animal never before seen... or perhaps a kind of deformation after being submerged in the lake.

But some residents of Big Trout Lake believe that "the monster" is a strange mythical creature   and in the local language called  "omajinaakoos" ("The Ugly") and has not been seen for almost half a century. 

The photos posted on the website of Big Trout Lake show an elongated body, with brown hair and a pale face in looming elongated curved tusks. The lack of color of eyes adds a disturbing dimension to the image.

According to local media some of the indigenous elders of Big Trout Lake, say the animal is a messenger of bad news. 

"Nobody knows what it is but our ancestors called it 'omajinaakoos. It is almost never seen but when it occurs it is a bad omen. Something bad will happen according to our ancestors," said the elder on the website of the community.

Crypto-creature or ?

The opinions of Internet users around the world is divided, some compare the creature with the Montauk Monster, a crypto-creature which  appeared in New York in 2008 but the identity of which was never conclusively proven.

Others do not hesitate to classify the animal as a fraud and assert that the morphology of the animal corresponds to that of a dead otter which has lost skin and eye color after lying under water for days. Unfortunately  DNA testing or a more detailed study of the body will never be possible.

      Another possibility is that it was created through hybridization and DNA cloning experiments . . . ?

      No pigmentation in the eyes suggest it lived underground, perhaps an underground river system.

      Ontario is in the stretch zone of the ongoing Polar Shift and have had there share of earthquakes. Four 6.0's last month that were initially reported by the USGS and then removed from there site.

      Further south Wisconsin is also experiencing there own seismic disturbances.

      I submit to you that many more underground creatures will be found as the Earth continues to open up from the Polar Shift.

      Interesting. Sad that the body was never found but I find it odd that not even a single hair was searched for to run DNA tests. As for the image, one can never trust them in this day and age. Interesting hub!

      Hmmm. Interesting photos! My first though was of it being an otter but the teeth seem odd for this mammal. Too bad the thing disappeared as the body would have been important to study. Weird looking creature!
