- A huge foul smelling carcass has washed up on the eastern coast of Russia that left villagers in disbelief
- The sea monster appears to have a tail or long tentacle, and tube-like hair or fur with “no definite head or eyes”
- Locals speculated that it’s a bizarre primeval relic or an extinct woolly mammoth released from an undersea permafrost grave by the warm summer.
Villagers of the eastern coast of Russia were baffled when a mysterious giant ‘hairy sea monster’ has washed ashore.
The ugly and smelly chalk-colored beast appears to have a tail or long tentacle, tube-like hair or fur and it has no definite head or eyes.

According to reports, “The ‘monster’ was too heavy for locals to move after it was found on the Pacific coastline of the Kamchatka peninsula, near the remote village of Pakhachi.
Witness Svetlana Dyadenko wrote online: “The most interesting thing to me is that the creature is covered with tubular fur. Could it be some ancient creature? I wish scientists could inspect this enigma that ocean threw at us.”
“It does look like fur, but it’s tubular, as if a lot of tiny pipes hang down the carcass. A really strange-looking creature. We googled it and couldn’t find anything resembling it,” she added.
Svetlana reported that locals “could not dig or pull it out, “You would need an excavator because part of it got completely covered with sand,” she said
Locals failed to identify the hairy beast and speculate it’s a bizarre primeval relic or an extinct woolly mammoth.
Some even suggested it may be a “globster”, which at first may resemble a gigantic octopus while others may have some bones or tentacles or flippers – or even eyes – but they are not usually hairy.
However, Russian marine scientist Sergei Kornev, from the Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, believes the Kamchatka monster is part of a whale.
He said: “Under the influence of the sea, time and various animals, from the smallest to the largest, a whale often takes on bizarre forms. This is only a part of a whale, not a whole one.”
