Scrolling through my Facebook news feed today, and I got the crap scared out of me! A friend of mine posted pictures of this strange, ugly looking creature that her friend caught fishing. This 'thing' was caught on the Penobscot River over the weekend. The girl that took the pictures of it warned people 'don't go in the river right now, or your pups! Thousands of these are going up stream right now?' It's like straight out of a horror movie!

So you tell me, is this a for real creature or a hoax? Have you ever seen this in the Penobscot River? What is it?
