Loch Ness Monster's English Cousin Caught on Film
Posted by David Ozanich — 21 Feb 2011
Is this England's answer to the Loch Ness Monster? That's the question the British tabloid The Sun is asking after 24-year-old Tom Pickles snapped the above picture on his cell phone while kayaking on Lake Windermere:
Last night experts hailed the snap as the best proof yet that "something" lives in Windermere which - at 10.5 miles long and 220 ft deep - is England's biggest natural lake.
Locals in the town of Bowness have reported sightings of a creature, affectionately dubbed Bownessie, since the 1950s.
While I, of course, view this as incontrovertible proof that a monster lives in the dark waters of Lake Windermere, others are speculating "the creature could be an Eastern European catfish." So ... who knows? Best be careful out there, folks.
