Canada's Loch Ness Monster Caught on Tape?
ABC News Blogs ^ | 11/11/11 | ABC News

A possible sighting of Canada’s version of the Loch Ness monster at a lake in British Columbia has stirred up the legend of the sea creature long-rumored to reside there.

A man visiting British Colombia’s Lake Okanagan claims he filmed video of what could only be the elusive monster, known to locals as Ogopogo. The 30-second video shows two long ripples in the water in a seemingly deserted area of the lake.

“It was not going with the waves,” Richard Huls, who captured the scene on camera during a visit to a local winery, told the Vancouver Sun. “It was not a wave, obviously, just a darker color. The size and the fact that they were not parallel with the waves made me think it had to be something else.”

Pleiosaur-type creatures are believed to inhabit the world’s most remote mountain lakes. No actual proof of their existence has ever been produced.

I’ll remember this the next time I hear about “legitimate news sources” like ABC.

The best part about this exciting new footage is that modern, quality video is sooooo much better than the old crap. /s

30 seconds of shaky, often blurry video just doesn’t cut it. The short length of time and the shakiness just doesn’t let you get a frame of reference for the darker linear feature’s alignment or motion. While I’m always hoping for good proof of these creatures (I think all of these stories may have an actual creature at their roots) - i don’t think this video is it! (They look like waves to me - a wake from a boat from across the lake interacting with the nearby shoreline).

I will NEVER see JAWS.

I might be the only one in America that hasn't seen it ... and won't.
