A mysterious 15-foot creature has been discovered washed up on a British seashore, leaving locals surprised. According to Liverpool Echo, a person, who requested to stay unnamed, discovered the “smelly” carcass on Ainsdale seashore on Wednesday, July 29.
“It had four flippers which made it look most weird. And it was furry,” the person stated. “It was approximately 15ft long and had bones sticking out everywhere, approximately four feet long some of them. Stunk too.”
“It looked like it had an extra thing attached to it, maybe it was giving birth and died?” the person added.
Photos of the bizarre-looking creature have been posted on the Ainsdale Community Group on Facebook, and have since gone viral on-line. The images present the large creature – which has since been dubbed the Ainsdale Anomaly by social media – mendacity on the sand.
The photos have gone viral and picked up over 500 feedback – with many making an attempt to guess what the creature may very well be.
“A woolly mammoth?” requested one particular person, including: “Yes I’m aware they’re extinct but honestly what it looks like to me!”
“Maybe a whale that’s ate a cow,” one other joked.
“It’s a walrus,” one Facebook consumer declared, whereas one other stated: “Horse, bull or cow?”
According to The Sun, Stephen Ayliffe, Senior Advisor at Natural England, stated that the animal’s id remained unconfirmed.
“We can confirm that an animal in a poorly decomposed state has washed up on Ainsdale beach, and whilst the identification of the animal is unconfirmed, it appears to be a species of whale,” he stated.
“We are working with an animal removal company to have the animal’s remains removed from the beach as soon as possible.”
In 2017, beachgoers within the Philippines have been left surprised after they noticed the corpse of mysterious sea creature washed ashore.
