It's male and it has it's genitalia in the exact same place as a Pug or similar dog. The second point is it has pooped itself. Is this common with dead animals? I know dogs and cats do that when they are scared.
( not to mention many other ways dogs can drown, and wash up on a beach )
Yeah good points, it could ahve jumped in the water to grab somehting, maybe even a bit of wood. Could explain the thing in it's mouth.
It's on the same beach by the way. It happens a lot on that beach which is why there is a conspiracy theory about the lab on plum island. I personally think it's jsut the way the water comes in to that beach.
If it is a dog, I would go with a cross, makes it more difficult to pin down.
Odd that with so many pictures, from different angles (paws, teeth, snout etc) no-one has confirmed what it is yet...
I think the coypus ears are too small and rounded. But good suggestion.
Where is Tailor?! LOL
