Was a Giant Squid Carcass Found in Indonesia?

Villagers have called on the government to help remove the tonnes of stinking flesh, according to the Jakarta Globe.

By Wednesday, the massive, still-bleeding carcass was drawing plenty of attention from local residents, who flocked to Huamal Beach to catch a glimpse of the mysterious creature.

Mysterious sightings have also been seen near New Zealand.

It is not clear how the mystery monster met its demise, but it is thought to hav been dead for at least three days before it was found.

An analysis of the images concluded that the find was actually the remains of a basking shark.

Napoli proved too strong for Cagliari , as they romped to a 3-1 win at the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday evening. Diego Farias broke away to pull one back in stoppage time for Cagliari .

Since its discovery, locals have been at odds as to whether it's a giant squid of the remains of a whale.

The massive pile of decomposing flesh measures nearly 50 feet long and has washed up onto the shore.

The gruesome remains of species being washed up to shore is far from a rare occurrence, even in England. "Most likely, the animal was brought by the warm current". However, it has fur.

A local mistook the giant creature for a stranded boat.

Vice did some more digging around and sent a photo of the creature to the Zoological Society of London, and someone there identified it as a baleen whale.
