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…
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:
