Montauk Monster. OMFG, my summer is a horror movie. Update: NY Mag finds live witnesses. So it sounds legit, but still unidentified.
Can't wait until everyone finds out this was viral marketing for Bloghaüs.

Some forensic types are saying it's a dog, possibly with his legs tied together. Eek!

it's not that bad im a fan of hairless animals ^.^ I really don't think its a dog.. And if it's an animals tested animal im going to be pissed! But if it's not then i hope we find out more about it because it's really interesting. It didn't look scary.. I felt bad it had so much bloating and stuff. He was like a little pinkie :(

They've been making a pretty good case for dog on the Gawker comments thread, complete with links to boxer skulls. Pretty sad if it is.
I thought it was a turtle sans shell too, but turtle shells are connected to their spine, so if that were the case it would have a lot more damage to the back than that!

looks like some photoshop work to me. A 3 part piece of work. Poor blending around the neck and cheek though.

CNN was showing Jeanne Moos' report on this all day long. She walks down the street asking people at random what this creature is. What are the chances you'll bump into a cryptozoologist just by chance. This is not reporting, CNN, this is filler.
