Fiona has PEI . Unveiled the bizarre discovery on the beaches of

Earlier this week Jenny Chasson and her son saw photos of a green car rusting off the mound near Miminegash on social media.

In search of the “clean stuff” on the beach, they took a ride on Cape Gage Road. Eventually they found two old cars, which were glued to the sand on the side.

“My son was playing with the shovel and pulling it out for a bit.”

Chasson said that when he posted about his discovery, he heard from people in the area who said the cars may have been part of an old junkyard.

A little further from the beach he saw some cottages that were affected by the storm. Chaisson estimates that about 24 meters of land is missing along the coast due to post-Tropical Storm Fiona.

“It’s a completely different beach now. It’s so wide in some places, in some places you can’t go – like it’s interesting enough what it did. Even that rocks It’s gone, like big chunks of rocks are down. It’s amazing.”

‘I knew it wasn’t the paw’

Meanwhile, Jessie Gaudette of Tignish decided to take her dog for a walk on Sunday after the storm.

He expected to find sea glass, but he saw something more interesting clinging to the sand.

It was a partial animal skull with a long tusk and six teeth.

“When I took it out of the sand and the tooth came out, I thought it was actually a giant claw at the time. And once I realized I saw the teeth, I knew it wasn’t a claw. “

Gaudet called the New Brunswick Museum. He said that they told him to keep him in salt water until they could come and see his find.

I wish I could keep it myself but because of how to preserve it… it’s better to go somewhere else to keep it longer.”– Jesse Gaudet

She said that looking at the photos she had sent, the museum told her that it could be a walrus skull that is between 3,000 and 12,000 years old.

“I’m excited. I wish I could keep it myself but because of how to preserve it… it’s better to go somewhere else to preserve it longer.”
