A view of the Loch Ness Monster, near Inverness, Scotland, April 19, 1934. The photograph, one of two pictures known as the 'surgeon's photographs,' was allegedly taken by Colonel Robert Kenneth Wilson, though it was later exposed as a hoax by one of the participants, Chris Spurling, who, on his deathbed, revealed that the pictures were staged by himself, Marmaduke and Ian Wetherell, and Wilson. References to a monster in Loch Ness date back to St. Columba's biography in 565 AD. More than 1,000 people claim to have seen 'Nessie' and the area is, consequently, a popular tourist attraction.

 Bad news, monster hunters.  There probably ISN’T a dinosaur or any other monster swimming around right now in Scotland…

Scientists just studied the sea life in Loch Ness in Scotland to figure out if there really MIGHT be a monster in there.  And their conclusion is . . . no, there’s no DNA evidence.  Their best guess is the Loch Ness monster is actually a BIG EEL.

A team of scientists from New Zealand went to Scotland recently to study the sea life in Loch Ness to figure out if there really MIGHT be a monster in there.

And based on their conclusions . . . there’s no DNA evidence of dinosaurs, or any other mysterious or unknown creatures.

In fact, based on the sea life there, they’re pretty sure the Loch Ness monster is actually a BIG EEL.  Quote, “There’s no shark DNA . . . catfish DNA . . . [or] sturgeon either . . . [but] eels are very plentiful.”

 

That isn’t the only news about an Urban Legend this week…Check out this note from a city in Vermont that had to make sure people knew there is no Big Foot!

 

We can’t forget the Michigan Dogman:

With the recent sighting of the “Lake Ness” Monster on Lake Michigan, we’ve been talking about urban legends, including the Michigan Dogman…

"Lake Ness" Monster in Lake Michigan? Well no, but...

Not, of course. Sturgeon or Silt Fencing? Or other? You Decide. This is my personal news report of gale footage on 6-13-19 as found in live webcam archive. Full credit and copyright: WWMT and Horizon Broadband in South Haven MI, located in downtown. Wind and distance hurts resolution badly.

the Michigan Dogman was allegedly witnessed in 1887 in Wexford County, Michigan. The creature is described as a seven-foot tall, blue-eyed, or amber-eyed bipedal canine-like animal with the torso of a man and a fearsome howl that sounds like a human scream.

According to legends, the Michigan Dogman appears in a ten-year cycle that falls on years ending in 7. Sightings have been reported in several locations throughout Michigan, primarily in the northwestern quadrant of the Lower Peninsula. In 1987, the legend of the Michigan Dogman gained popularity when disc jockey Steve Cook at WTCM-FM recorded a song about the creature and its reported sightings.

“The Gable Film” may be the most famous video or evidence when it comes to the Dogman.

The film has been slowed down and focused:
