RYNO

The idea for the RYNO was born seven years ago, when creator Chris Hoffman’s daughter asked him to build a working version of a one-wheeled ride she saw in a video game. With a top speed of 16 Km/hour and a range of 16 Km, it won’t take you too far, too fast but will certainly attract a lot of interest. This one-wheeled, self-balancing electric motorcycle is about to hit the market with a price tag of $5,300.

When Mr. Luetscher went to pick up the shears, he lost his balance and fell face-down on the handle. The shears handle penetrated his eye socket underneath his eye and went down into his neck. Mr. Luetscher was taken by ambulance to University Medical Center’s Level 1 Trauma Center. University of Arizona surgeons, including trauma surgeon Julie Wynne, MD, oculoplastic specialist Lynn Polonski, MD, and vascular surgeon Kay Goshima, MD, were able to remove the shears, rebuild his orbital floor with metal mesh, and save his eye.Shocking-X-rays-220911-02_044354

10. Fire-Walking

Walking-On-Fire-Med

People from South India ‘celebrate’ the Theemithi festival by walking barefoot across a pit filled with burning hot firewood, or sometimes glowing charcoal. The fire walking is done in honour of the Hindu goddess Draupati Amman – so rather than hurrying across the pit, the devotees have to sdo it slowly, as though it’s a walk in the park.

The ritual begins when the head priest traverses the pit with a pot on his head, filled with sacred water. He is then followed by other men, who seek to prove their piety by withstanding the pain. Participants suffer from burns on their feet – and sometimes worse injuries, on the all-too-common occasions when they fall into the burning pit.

9. Hooking

Thookkam 9364

The thookam festival sees the backs of devoted Hindus pierced by sharp hooks; the men are then lifted off the ground onto a scaffold using ropes. Sometimes, children are even tied to the hands of the participants. Originating from southern parts of India, the festival has now been banned by the Indian Government after continued pressure from human rights organizations.

8. Bull Fighting

Jallikattu-A-Bull-Taming--006

Unlike its Spanish counterpart, Indian bull-fighting, or Jallikattu, is done without the help of any rope or weapons. Thankfully, the bull’s life is also spared afterwards, bovines being famously sacred in India. Celebrated during Pongal (harvest thanksgiving), this is one of the most dangerous sports played in India. Youth, ardent for some desperate glory, usually strive either to tame the bull or at least to hang on to the bull for a reward – usually money.

More than a hundred people have been killed in southern India over the past two decades. A case against Jallikattu is ongoing in the Supreme Court of India, which is considering an outright ban on the sport. The bulls are force-fed alcohol; their eyes are sprinkled with chili powder, and their testicles are pinched in an effort to infuriate them.

7. Self-flagellation

Matam1

Muharram is the first month in the Islamic Calendar, and this was the month which marks the anniversary of the Battle of Karbala, when Imam Hussein ibn Ali was killed, followed by 72 warriors who were killed over the next ten days. Shi’a Muslims in India, and also other countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh, mourn this event by flogging their naked bodies with a bunch of chains known as ‘Matam’. Sometimes, these Matams also contain razor blades or knives.

6. Widow-burning

Sati14

Practiced extensively in the 17th century, Sati was a ritual whereby a widow – voluntarily or involuntarily – would lie down next to her dead husband before being burned alive along with the corpse. The widows who were caught trying to escape this fate, despite the intense social pressure to self-immolate, would be tied to the burning structure, or their limbs would be broken in order to prevent more attempts to flee. Sometimes, they would even be pushed back with bamboo sticks into the burning funeral pyre. Even though it was banned by the British colonial government in 1859, it was still practiced in some parts of India. It is still banned under the current Indian government, with harsh penalties for those few who still insist on forcing innocent women to their deaths.

5. Baby Tossing

Babytoss2 1541126C

Every year in the month of December, more than a hundred babies are tossed from a temple roof into a crowd below. They plummet 200 feet, to where a group of men stand waiting with a cloth meant to catch them. The reason? Married couples – looking to be blessed with, perhaps ironically, more babies – take part in this event. It is also said to bring good health and luck to the family. The Indian government is looking to set a ban on the jaw-dropping ritual, which takes place in the southern state of Karnataka.

4. Food Rolling

29Bgpage1-1 850609F

Enter certain temples in Karnataka, and you’ll be ordered to stop, drop and roll. Supplicants roll their bodies over scraps of food discarded by Brahmins – the highest, priestly caste in India. The act of rolling is practiced by all of the castes lower than Brahmin, and is said to cure skin disease.

Made snana has been in practice for over 500 years, but it is now on the verge of being banned. Though restrictions in certain temples had been put up in recent years, these restricitions were lifted after protests from devout Hindus. Members of the Indian government have therefore decided to educate, rather than impose their will upon the people. Good luck to them.

3.Chicken-shredding Exorcisms

2009 03 25-Blackchicken02

In Hinduism, exorcisms are carried out by various means, according to the traditions of different regions. One of these methods involves the slaughter of a white chicken: the bloody parts are strewn around the house by the Pandit or priest, who is usually in charge of performing the exorcism. The possessed person in question is then addressed as a demon, or by the name of a dead relative who may have become a demon within them. These demons, or spirits, are said to be afraid of white chickens. In some cases, the demon is reported to have screamed ‘I go! I go!’ through the possessed body, before apparently leaving. Supposedly, this is followed by the immediate revival of the exorcised person, who appears to wake from something like a trance, with no memory of the events or of the chicken.

2. Tongue Piercing

R

Not studs, but long and sharp needles are used to puncture the tongue. The needles – usually made from wood or steel – can be so long that the tongue is forced to stick out of the mouth permanently, unable to retract. The piercing is common a number of religious festivals. In some regions, young boys and sometimes girls take part in the ritual piercing. The ones who are going to pierce their tongues wear a garland around their necks for a day before the ceremony. The piercing ceremony is usually followed by dancing and merrymaking. These practices are also seen in countries other than India, in southern parts of Asia.

1. Female Infanticide

Female-Infanticide

This social evil exists not only in India, but also in many other parts of the world whose populations see male children as more desirable than female children. Preference for a male child can be so extreme that female infants might be killed, or set afloat in the river. Illegitimate girls, especially, were vulnerable to murder prompted by shame: only if a man agreed to marry the mother-to-be could the child often be saved – but this hardly ever happened. Infanticide was banned in the 19th century.

10. Cholera

waic_2_03_1947

Around 400 B.C.E., the Athenian physician Hippocrates catalogued the diseases of his world. Cholera was on the list. But while Hippocrates provides the first proof of cholera beyond a reasonable doubt, the disease likely originated along the Ganges River while Athens was still a very young place.

Cholera lives in many of the world’s water sources, but it’s most dangerous when it has an environment in which there are many people among whom it can spread. The Ganges River happens to be one of the most ancient locations of humanpopulation density, and so it was long, long ago that upstream users gathered in the numbers needed to pollute the water for those downstream. In other words, as more people become infected with cholera, they pollute the water supply with more bacteria, which in turn infects more people.

Interestingly, the same problem might have been a major factor in the loss of troops in Hannibal’s march across the Alps. With a 50,000-soldier train, the troops and animals in front would have encountered pristine mountain streams, but those in back would have been forced to deal with putrid and potentially cholera-rich water.

9. Typhoid

symptoms_of_typhoid_fever

From 430 to 426 B.C.E., a great plague swept through the city-state of Athens. The historian Thucydides describes the symptoms this way:

People in good health were all of a sudden attacked by violent heats in the head and the throat or tongue, becoming bloody and emitting an unnatural and fetid breath. When it fixed in the stomach, it upset it; and discharges of bile of every kind named by physicians ensued, accompanied by very great distress. If they passed this stage, and the disease descended further into the bowels, inducing a violent ulceration there accompanied by severe diarrhea, this brought on a weakness which was generally fatal.

8. Leprosy

Leprosy_deformities_hands

The Bible passage Leviticus 13:2 reads, “When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests.”

But this isn’t the first concrete mention of the disease. That honor goes to the Egyptian “Ebers Papyrus,” written in 1550 B.C.E., which recommends, “If you examine a large tumor of Khonsu in any part of a man and it is terrible and it has made many swellings. Something has appeared in it like that in which there is air … Then you shall say concerning it: It is a swelling of Khonsu. You should not do anything against it”.

While typhoid and cholera are fairly straightforward in their aggressive spread through water sources, leprosy relies on another dispersion strategy — that of dormancy. People can carry the bacteria that cause leprosy for 20 years or more before showing symptoms, and during this time can spread the disease.

One historical challenge in treating leprosy was diagnosis. In its early stages of expression, leprosy looks much like syphilis and somewhat like psoriasis. Misdiagnosis landed many psoriasis sufferers in leper colonies where many eventually did, ironically, contract and die from leprosy due to increased exposure.

7. Smallpox

smallpox

Generally, the goal of mummification is to preserve soft tissue. So, as you would expect, Egypt provides a treasure trove of information on ancient, soft tissue diseases.

One of the first researchers to turn a paleopathological eye on Egyptian mummies was Sir Marc Armand Ruffer, who in his 1921 book “Studies of the Palaeopathology of Egypt” described three mummies with “dome shaped vesicles” extremely similar to those expected of smallpox. The most ancient of these mummies was dated 1580 B.C.E., and the most recent was the mummy of Ramses V, who died in 1157 B.C.E.

After his own inspection of the mummy, Donald R. Hopkins, who participated in the World Health Organization’s Smallpox Eradication Program, wrote of Ramses V, “Inspection of the mummy revealed a rash of elevated ‘pustules’, each about 2 to 4 millimeters in diameter, that was most distinct on the lower face, neck, and shoulders, but was also visible on the arms.”

Is this conclusive? No, not necessarily, and to date there has been no modern analysis of Ramses V that could definitively determine if his condition was, in fact, smallpox. But the circumstantial evidence seems strong.

Smallpox is one of history’s greatest killers, responsible for 300 to 500 million deaths in the 20th century.

6. Rabies

human_rabies

Rabies is ingenious: Not only does it infect a host, but it also hijacks the host’s brain in a way that makes the host want to bite things. This is how rabies gets a ticket to ride. And it’s been doing it since at least 2300 B.C.E., when it was described in the Eshuma Code of Babylon.

The first person known to have survived rabies without a vaccination is Jeanna Giese, a Wisconsin teen who was bitten in 2004 by a rabid bat while at church. The New York Times reports that Jeanna went a month between bite and treatment, and was admitted to the hospital with symptoms of full-blown rabies. Doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin initiated a cocktail of coma-inducing and antiviral drugs, though Giese’s family credits prayer with saving the girl’s life.

5. Malaria

Symptoms_of_MalariaOriginal Title: A.funestus_1.50sRGB

The Romans offered the first cure for malaria: an amulet worn around the neck, inscribed with the powerful incantation “abracadabra”. Over the years, we’ve attempted various other cures: adding oil to stagnant puddles to smother mosquito larvae, using pesticides, vaccines and nets, and even leveraging high-tech solutions such as a laser that shoots mosquitoes in midair. But the disease continues to infect 300 million people every year, killing 1 million of them.

The Wall Street Journal reports that malaria is responsible for half of all human deaths since the Stone Age.

Granted, that statistic extends the origin of the disease back in time past its first definite mention, which was in the Chinese “Nei Ching (“The Canon of Medicine”), around the year 2700 B.C.E.

4. Pneumonia

Upala-pluća-pneumonija

People breathe more than 11,000 liters (3,000 gallons) of air every day. And so, as you would expect, the lungs are a favorite home of bacteria, viruses, fungi and even parasites. And when anything foreign colonizes the lungs, the most common result is fluid. The umbrella term we use to describe fluid in the lungs is pneumonia.

Hippocrates wrote that fluid in the lungs should be called pneumonia if, “the fever be acute, and if there be pains on either side, or in both, and if expiration be if cough be present, and the sputa expectorated be of a blond or livid color”. But he also distinctly calls it a “disease of the ancients.”

Where exactly does pneumonia place in this list of oldest known diseases? Because it’s a soft tissue disease, the archaeological record isn’t strong. But it’s likely that various forms of pneumonia have been around as long as our lungs.

3. Tuberculosis

6a00d8341c824e53ef010534a0c641970b-640wi

In 2008, a team of scientists from University College London excavated the submerged ancient city of Alit-Yam, off the coast of Israel. There, they found the buried remains of a mother and her child. Both skeletons showed bone lesions characteristic of tuberculosis. DNA testing confirmed it: Tuberculosis is at least 9,000 years old.

Interestingly, this dig also lent evidence to an ongoing chicken-or-the-egg debate of whether we got TB from cows or they got it from us. In Alit-Yam, human skeletons showed signs of TB, while DNA from animal skeletons didn’t. So it seems cows are not the killers we once thought.

Other historical speculation has proved equally false: Neither the fossil nor DNA records support the cause of TB as nightly revelry with fairies and the resulting lack of rest, nor is the disease the result of witches who transform the victim into a horse and then ride the victim to nightly meetings, as were once thought.

While the Alit-Yam finding is the oldest confirmed case of TB, characteristic lesions have been found on bones found in Turkey, dated about 500,000 years ago.

2. Trachoma

Trachoma

Trachoma is a chronic infection of the upper eyelid that eventually results in the eyelid constricting and turning the eyelashes in toward the cornea. Over time, the rubbing of the constricted eyelid and especially the eyelash makes the patient go blind. This is what happened to Aetius, Paulus Aeginetus, Alexander, Trailaus, Horace and Cicero. And trachoma is described in Hippocrates and in the Egyptian Ebers papyrus.

But researchers make a compelling case for earlier trachoma found in a corner of the world little associated with early diseases: Australia. Aboriginal skeletons from 8000 B.C.E. show a common skull lesion around the eyes. Scientists determined that these lesions were due to bone infection that had come from soft tissue infection. Though there are a few eye diseases that could fit this bill, the skeletons were found in the Australian region in which trachoma is most common today.

1. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

rocky mountain

Mitochondria are small organelles found in nearly every cell in the human body. And they perform a function essential to human life, converting glucose from food to energy called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which cells can use.

But mitochondria carry their own genetic material — separate from human DNA — and these genes look a lot like those of bacteria. In other words, it’s very likely that the mitochondria that we depend on for survival are the products of an ancient infection.

Whatever the infection, it predates animal life, let alone humans. So there’s no use exploring the fossil record. Instead, researchers compared the genes of mitochondria to those of existing bacteria. The closest match was to bacteria of order Rickettsiales, many of which cause diseases — including Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

Teeth Chiseling

tumblr_lkgzb7z8IB1qb3nmuo1_500

In Mantawaian, a remote village from Sumatra, the natives don’t just pierce and tattoo their skins, they also chisel their teeth. Why do they do it? Because an old myth of theirs says that their ancestors once separated in spirits and humans. Humans were able to join the spirits if they felt unhappy with their lives. A soul can leave the body, causing its death if it is not happy with the body. So in order to keep their souls happy, the natives make their looks prettier. And in their standards, teeth chiseling is a good way to look pretty.

In 2013 a baby boy was born with a bizarre long tail hanging out of his lower back, and the weirdest thing is that it is still growing. As spooky and strange as that may sound, it is a real case and we’ve got the story right here. Have a look for yourself at the 2013 Chinese baby with a tail.

Xiao Wei is the name of the poor baby who was unlucky enough to be born with an odd tail sticking out of his lower back. What’s even worse is the fact that the tail is posing a threat to his life due to the fact that it is still growing.

baby-with-tail-2013-3

The fact that the spinal cord is out in the baby’s tail only makes things worse for the doctors, who declared that they can not simply cut off the tail and make the baby look normal. Surgeon Huang Chanping declared that the growth is highly developed and now measures approximately 10 centimeters.

So hopefully, the good doctors will be able to cure the baby from this Myelomeningocele, which is one of the most common type of spina bifida, with an occurrence rate of 1 in 800 babies born.

The Performance Artist Who Nailed His Own Testicles to Red Square (Russia)

pyotr TURS99z

In November 2013, Pyotr Pavlensky, a 29-year-old Russian performance artist, nailed his testicles to a Red Square cobblestone outside Lenin’s Mausoleum in Moscow in protest against the Kremlin’s crackdown on political rights.

Following the incident, Pavlensky received treatment at a clinic before being taken to a police station.

It’s not the first time that Pavlensky has resorted to dramatic methods of protest. He has previously sewn his lips together to demonstrate against the jailing of two female members of the Pussy Riot punk band who staged an anti-Kremlin performance inside Moscow’s main cathedral in 2011. He was also arrested after wrapping his naked body in barbed wire outside a Saint Petersburg government building.

The Single Man Who Cut Off His Own Penis Because It’s of No Use to Him (China)

guy_cuts_off_penis

In October 2013, Yang Hu, a 26-year-old single Chinese man decided to cut off his member as there was no use for it.

Mr. Hu (not pictured) had been increasingly depressed about the fact that, since moving to the city, he could not find a girlfriend. What was worse was that he was working such long hours in a clothing factory in Jiaxing, in east China, that he doubted he would ever have a chance to meet a woman.

His depression grew so bad that he decided to cut off his member as “there was no use for it anyway,” believing that it would stop him from thinking about getting a girlfriend. However, after suffering in agony he made the decision to cycle to a hospital for treatment.

When he arrived doctors told him that they couldn’t help save his manhood and ordered him to cycle back home to get the penis before he could be treated.

Unfortunately, when Mr. Hu eventually arrived back at the hospital with the severed member, doctors told him that it had been without blood for too long, so it was impossible to reattach it.

The big question is why doctors didn’t provide the man with an ambulance. That way he might have managed to get home quicker and his private parts could have been saved.

The Man Who Ripped Off His Own Penis After Taking Hallucinogenic Mushrooms (USA)

mushrooms

In June 2013, a 41-year-old Columbus, Ohio native, whose name has not been reported, ripped off his own penis during a drug-fueled high after taking magic mushrooms.

According to police, the man was completely stoned when he was found naked, covered in blood, and screaming outside of Ypsilanti Middle School in Michigan, and parts of his genitals lay on the ground beside him. Everything indicated that the man had mutilated his penis with his bare hands.

Apparently, the man broke a window at the school, which set off the alarm, and police were alerted.

Immediately, officers subdued the man and took him to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. He later reportedly told investigators that he was in the Ypsilanti area visiting friends and had taken hallucinogenic mushrooms, but he didn’t remember much after that.

Despite having been bombastic news, nothing more was heard about this man or his medical treatment.

The Portuguese Model Who Removed His Lover’s Testicles with a Corkscrew (USA)

hotel14n-4-web

In January 2012, Renato Seabra, a 23-year-old former Portuguese model, bludgeoned his 65-year-old lover Carlos Castro to death and then removed his testicles with a corkscrew in a New York hotel room.

Mr. Castro, a well-known TV personality and writer in Portugal, ended their affair and would no longer pay for Seabra’s high-flying lifestyle. So, in a fit of rage, the former model stomped his lover’s face, stabbed him in the face and groin with a corkscrew, and rammed a computer monitor onto his head. Seabra then castrated Mr. Castro with a corkscrew and placed the testicles on his own wrists. He showered, put on clean clothes, took $1,600 from Mr. Castro’s wallet, and placed a “do not disturb” sign on the room’s door before checking himself into the hospital. The day after the murder, Seabra confessed to the crime in the hospital.

According to Seabra’s lawyers, his client killed Mr. Castro due to a few delusions that had led the former model to believe that he was on a mission from God to rid Mr. Castro of homosexuality.

In December 2012, the former model was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

In September 2013, Gentil Ramírez Polanía, a 66-year-old former local politician from Colombia, had to have his penis amputated after he allegedly overdosed on Viagra to impress his girlfriend.

After an erection that lasted for several days, his penis started to develop signs of gangrene and he was forced to go to the hospital due to the pain.

When he sought medical help, doctors informed him that his only option was amputation so the inflammation and gangrene would stop spreading to other parts of his body.

The Peruvian Man Who Lost His Penis Due to a Penile Implant Gone Wrong (USA)

In 2007, Enrique Milla, a 65-year-old Peruvian man, lost his penis after a post-surgical infection that resulted in the amputation of his organ.

Mr. Milla elected to have penile implant surgery because he suffered from erectile dysfunction, but doctors erred in letting Milla have the surgery because the patient suffered from high blood pressure and extreme diabetes, factors that would make him a poor candidate for the procedure.

Two weeks after the operation, Mr. Milla developed an infection that eventually turned to gangrene. Amputation of his penis was necessary to save his life.

The Doctors’ attorney blamed Milla for not taking care of himself properly after the procedure. The attorney said that Milla may have contracted the infection by engaging in post-surgical sex, resulting in an infection.

In February 2011, Jian Chen, a 48-year-old Chinese woman who was living in Australia, chopped off her ex-partner’s penis and fatally stabbed him in the neck to prevent him from targeting other women.

Chen added sleeping tablets to her former partner’s dinner and waited for him to fall asleep before tying his hands and feet and cutting off his penis.

The Courier Mail reports that the man died in Royal North Shore Hospital from his injuries, including stab wounds to his jaw and leg.

According to the information, 48-year-old Xian Peng returned to Australia from China for a visit and was at the home of his former partner Jian Chen.

In August 2012, Chen was sentenced to a minimum of three years and nine months in jail after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

According to Chen’s statement, she was suffering from a “substantial impairment of the mind” due to mental illness. Chen also believed that her husband wanted to impregnate wealthy women to get money off them, so she decided to destroy “his weapon” to keep him from harming any more women and future children.

In  2012, residents of the Guatemalan village  decided that a pig’s odd human-shaped head was the work of extraterrestrials, after strange bright lights were spotted hovering in the sky on the night of its birth. The poor pig, which was one of a litter of 11, as described as looking like a cross between a human and something from science fiction movies. Farmer Laureano Escobar Arias said: ‘I was shocked – it was a really terrifying experience.

‘It looked like some kind of alien creature.’

However, local health officials have suggested that there are more earthly reasons for the pig’s appearance.

On Monday, January 22, 2012, doctors and staff of Fakon Idi Veterinary Clinic, in Sokoto metropolis were hit with amazement when a sheep was delivered of a monster-like creature. The news of a “half sheep, half human” creature born to an adult sheep in the town of Sokoto, Nigeria quickly spread across the world.

According to the Daily Post in Nigeria, in September, 2012 a general hospital located in Jahun, Jigawa state became a theater of absurd and bizarre when a woman who had labored for 9 months gave birth to what looks like a combination of human head and goat legs. The woman whose identity is yet to be revealed had delivered peacefully only to have had a child with human head with no neck, and goat legs handed to her by the doctor.

The Daily Telegraph on September 28, 2009 reported a goat, which died just a few hours after birth in Lower Gweru, Zimbabwe, had a huge head and face which resembled a human as well as goat legs and a tail. The Zimbabwe Guardian reported that Midlands Governor and Resident Minister Jason Machaya maintained the creature was the result of a coupling between man and goat. “This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing. It is really embarrassing,” Machaya  said.   ”The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat. This is evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control

Montauk Monster

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cDovLzIuYnAuYmxvZ3Nwb3QuY29tLy1iNEYzUWx3YWVaVS9VUTE4MjFUeWRXSS9BQUFBQUFBQVFXTS8xZnBmYV8tV0Rfcy9zNjQwL21vbnRhdWsrbW9uc3Rlci5qcGc=

The “Montauk Monster” was found in the area  of Montauk , Long Island, a coastal New York, town in 2008.  It had a hairless body like a doga dog but a beak and teeth that were very strange.

Some say the  ”Montauk Monster” was raccoon carcass that washed ashore dead.  The identity of the creature, and the veracity of stories surrounding it, has been the subject of controversy and speculation. It is unknown what happened to the carcass. William Wise, director of Stony Brook University’s Living Marine Resources Institute, interpreted the photo along with a colleague; they deemed the creature a fake, most likely the result of “someone who got very creative with latex”, although his “next-best guess” was that the creature could be a diseased dog or coyote which had “been in the sea for a while”. Wise discounted the following general possibilities:

Raccoon – the legs appear to be too long in proportion to the body.

Sea turtle – sea turtles do not have teeth, and the body cannot be removed from the shell without doing damage to muscle and skin tissue and the spine.

Rodent – rodents have two huge, curved incisor teeth in front of their mouths.

Dog or other canine such as a coyote – the prominent eye ridge does not match the creature’s feet.

Sheep or other ovine – sheep have two-toed hooves, not multi-toed paws.

Plum island is an animal disease center just outside Long island wich is one of the most dangerous bio-labs in the U.S. They are performing studies and tests on bio-warfare and exotic diseases of animals .  Some maintain the creature was an experiement from that lab.

“The Parks Dept. was probably very quick to identify it as a pig and dispose of it, but it is most certainly NOT a pig,” Denise Ginley stressed to the Daily News. “The most obvious sign being the lack of a cloven hoof, instead this creature has five digits all close together.”
