The Return of Bownessie!

– – Last September, we had posted about Bownessie, possibly a distant relative of the Loch Ness monster native to Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake.   A recent eighth sighting of the creature in the past five years has produced the clearest photographic image yet of the elusive cryptid, revealing a creature with oily black skin and three eerie humps.

The unidentified animal was judged to be about the size of three cars by the 24-year-old kayaker and his companion who observed it, and it moved at approximately 10 miles an hour with each hump demonstrating a rippling motion.

Skeptics remain unconvinced that something of the size attributed to the creature could exist in the 11 mile long lake.  Echo sounding surveys conducted each month have revealed nothing, nor have two prior sonar scans.   A lake ecologist feels that the aquatic beast could be an Eastern European catfish misjudged as to size.  A hoax cannot be ruled out as the file size of the photo, taken on a camera phone, is too small to really tell if it had been altered on Photoshop or not…

    How could a wels catfish make it from the European mainland to an English lake? They’re not saltwater tolerant like bull sharks. And, wouldn’t some kind of stocking experiment have to have been approved by the English Customs Service (considering how nearly out of control the Chinese mitten crab is, in the UK)?

      You “otter” hear that another explanation is that perhaps the creature was in reality three mustelids swimming together…I’m so glad to be able to use that one! 😉
