Mysterious sea creature washes up on the shores of Phillippines leaving locals baffled
Creature measures around 20 square foot and smells awful. Locals are in fear thinking that a disaster may happen, however,marines believe it could be just a whale.
A massive hairy sea creature has been found washed up on the shore of Philippines. This creature has created fear in the minds of the locals that some earthquake-like disaster is going to occur.
The body of the 20-foot long globster appeared on the shore of San Antonio in Oriental Mindoro province at about 7 pm on May 11. The Daily Mail reported.
A big heap of villagers surrounded the gigantic globster — an unidentified blob of organic mass — to take a selfie with the appearance.
Marine workers on the location took samples of the creature, what appeared to be four foot on a side and two foot on the other.
The said the greyish white creature smelled 'awful' like some creature from another planet. However, the local villagers started fearing the phenomenon as if some terrible natural disaster is going to occur in the coming days.
An earthquake is heading for Oriental Mindoro, "The big globster is a sign of something bad coming. Please pray for us." said Tam Mailing a localite.
Mother-of-two Imelda Mariz said, "I couldn't believe what it was, I've never seen anything like it. In God's name, I was shocked. The children were scared it was a dead monster. Nobody knows what it is yet."
The government workers are scheduled to dispose of the monster, they believe it could be just a dead whale.
Fishery Law Enforcement Officer Vox Krusada said, "For now we can say it is a whale, but the exact species is still unknown. The tissue samples are now sent to our lab for DNA analysis. The local government of Gloria will now bury the carcass."
"I really experienced the full power of its smell because I'm the one who took the tissue samples. I almost puked. I felt better after taking a bath but the stench still lingers in my nose," He added.
In February last year, a similar globster was found on the coast in the Philippines. Officials believed the beast, which was found on Dinagat Island, was an orca or a manatee.
