Louisiana - The Morgan City Monster. “50 States of Freaky!” Vol. 18

Louisiana - The Morgan City Monster. “50 States of Freaky!” Vol. 18

Be sure you’re all caught up with this series! “50 States of Freaky”


Hey, this seems familiar…oh yeah, it’s because I’ve already done a post on this story! That’s right, for some of you VERY early followers, you may remember when I covered the infamous photograph of the bizarre thin, alien-like creature from Louisiana. That was back in February and you can read that post by clicking HERE. For an early post, it was good, but let’s do a sort of ‘redux’ post! So let’s quickly talk about all the info on this picture. On December 4th, 2010 at 1:44 a.m. in Berwick, Morgan City, Louisiana, a trail camera set up by a nature photographer captured an image of a creepy alien-like creature. The nature photographer later found the trail cam destroyed but discovered that the SIM card was still intact. Then his friend sent the picture to a local news station and let them show the photo on TV. They did so and soon the picture spread all across the interwebs. It’s still unknown if the picture is real or just a hoax.

(The photo of the mysterious creature.)
So like I said the first time, I can see both sides of the argument. But, I think now I’m able to pick a side on this story. Originally I chose to stay in the middle, but now I think I’m going to say the picture is fake. Yes it looks pretty convincing, but after doing some thinking, it just doesn’t seem real. First off, the guy who submitted the photo wanted to remain anonymous. That can be seen as fishy, especially since he wasn’t even the one to take the photo. Well, the trail camera took the  photo, but you know what I mean. Why couldn’t     the nature photographer send them the photo? Is it because he doesn’t exist? Also, after looking at the photo a bit more, something about just seems fake to me now. I don’t if it’s the arms and the way they look fuzzy around the edges which could indicate Photoshop, or if it’s that fact that it could easily just be a dummy. And the fact that the camera was smashed and the SIM card just happen to survive seems a bit TOO lucky IMO. Overall, I now think the photo is fake, but I’m not sure exactly how it was faked. So my opinion has changed, has yours changed as well or has it stayed the same? Do you think the photo is real or was it faked whether through Photoshop, with a dummy or was a different method used entirely? If it’s real, what do you think the creature is?
