'Monster' spotted in Lake Windermere

Two kayakers claim to have spotted a strange creature in the waters of England's Lake Windermere.

Nicknamed 'Bownessie' the Loch Ness Monster-like creature is fabled to live in the lake's depths, Tom Pickles and Sarah Harrington both witnessed what they believed to be the beast. "Its skin was like a seal's, but its shape was abnormal -- it's not like any animal I've ever seen before. We saw it for about 20 seconds. It was petrifying. We paddled back to the shore straight away," says Harrington.

"Bownessie, the mythical younger and less famous sea monster of Britain's Lake Windermere, who lives in the shadow of her northern neighbor, the fabled Loch Ness monster, may have been spotted today."

TheseNessie spotters are pathetic because each photo is of a differently shaped animaal. So if you believe ,then you must accept that there are many monsters popping up and down just staying up for a few seconds.They must have a sense of humour lol

It's completely improbable that a large creature could be living undetected in Windermere. It is a fraction of the size of Loch Ness and frequented by plenty of water traffic. Plus, the stories seem to be a modern invention. If there really was something there sightings would go way back. Sounds like a gimmick to attract tourists if you ask me.

Most of those pics and videos were proven to be fake. Strange anomalies are caught on camera now and then, but most people automatically claim lake monster, even though there is no evidence on what it actually is.

Not when you consider how many people visit Windermere year round. Lazy news paper reporters with nothing better to do than buzz off down the pub on a lunch time. Der how can I fill this up? Here put old Nessy in there it's always good for a column or two.
