Mysterious carcass washes up on Scarborough beach

Written by

SCARBOROUGH - Something strange appeared along the Maine coast Thursday morning -- and no one appears to know exactly what it is.

Amy Cesar, who was at Higgins Beach when the creature's body washed onto shore, took several photos.


Officials from Marine Mammals of Maine said they believe the carcass is that of some species of shark but were not sure what kind because it was too decomposed. They did, however, say it was not a whale.


The carcass since has been removed from the beach.
