Possible ‘Alien’ corpse found in Russia
The body of a creature with a ‘mysterious skull’ was discovered on the banks of the River Kovashi in the Russian town of Sosnovy Bor, on Sunday.
The locals who found the body initially thought it was a discarded mutant chicken embryo.
Experts have so far no idea what it is with one researcher quoted as saying "It seems that this body is neither fish nor fowl - this creature has a mysterious skull, no neck and wings."
Biologist Yegor Zadereev reportedly said: "Extensive studies are needed to determine what kind of creature or organism it is."
The creature, which was found near the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant, was examined by experts from the Institute of Biophysics in Krasnoyarsk, who failed to shed any light on the organism.
It is now expected to be brought to Moscow for further tests.
Scott C Waring, who edits UFO Sightings Daily, said: "This tiny alien body was found near a river in Russia and has no resemblance to any animal known.
"Russian scientists are confused over what it could be and said they need to wait for the results of the tests, which are probably DNA I assume."
