Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The story primarily seems to be a rant against government regulation. One could perhaps forgive it for that if the townspeople had done anything themselves to deal with the beast, but we're never told how the Behemoth ended up on the beach. Ultimately there's no plot to this story; the events just happen.
