The Beast Of Tenby, also known as the Beast from the East, was the name given to a strange animal carcass that washed ashore on the Welsh Tenby beach on February 22, 2013. The beast was discovered by local resident 27-year-old Peter Bailey, who came across the creature while taking a walk with his dog.
The beast appears to be mammalian, having a thin layer of fur, bear-like claws, and a mouth filled with numerous sharp teeth. The creature also had five claws on each foot, similar to the Highway Beast.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A dead badger
- The site posted a picture of the beast on Facebook, where it was shared hundreds of times and widely debated.
