Summer is in full swing, so you know what that means: Monsters! It was exactly one year ago today that we first reported on the Montauk Monster and now something that looks like Monty's cousin has emerged in Toronto. Alive!

The creature was photographed by a Toronto resident named Jeffrey Freeman as it was rummaging around in his backyard. What could this hellish thing possibly be? Freeman thinks it's an opossum, but his boyfriend thinks it's a "freakish alopecia marsupial." Torontoist suggests that it may be a bald raccoon, something they say is increasingly common in their area. Whatever it is, it looks like a damn monster!

Here's another shot of it:

See the resemblance?

They're both monsters!
