Man says 30-foot 'monster' lurking in canals of Madeira Beach
Tampa Bay Online ^ | 11-16-09 | By ROD CHALLENGER

There's something strange and big swimming in the canals of Madeira Beach along the Pinellas County coast. Those who have seen it say it's no fish and think it could be a sea serpent.

Russ Sittlow, 78, has seen it. He calls the creature "Normandy Nessie" because he lives on Normandy Road.

The retired engineer said he first saw "Nessie" in April.

"His head come up out of the water, and then he rolled up in a double roll behind him and he was long he was huge," he said of that first sighting.

Yeah, fine for the moat. But get a nice swimming pool for the kids inside the walls. And remember to feed whatever it is in the moat!

I’ll feed it fish or liberals by re”moat” control instead of by hand. Safer that way. =)

Exactly.

Excepting in my opinion snake isnt the best on the barbie. Its better med heat smoked. Also they are kinda picky in their food so the bait might become an issue. It would be one helluva interesting time!!!

Someone better go and get him elsewise the area WILL be over run with youngsters eating any and everything that moves right down to birds, cats, dogs and children.

To use the punch line from a very old joke:

Maybe Manny Puig can catch it. He likes to swim in the canals and swamps of Florida with the gators and snakes etc.

I AM the wife and using the roast would be OK with me. If this thing lived in the canal near my house, along with trying to catch it myself, I’d put a bounty on it and run ads in the paper.

Could easily be one of those boas or pythons that morons keep setting free in Florida when they get too big to play with around the house and kids.

A similar phenomenon probably explains the Wee Folk sightings in Ireland. ;’)

It’s okay to hit my own folks...
