Creatures, Myths & Legends

Loch Ness monster death rumours denied

A lack of recent sightings of the Loch Ness monster has prompted speculation that the creature, if it existed, might now be dead.
The head of the official Loch Ness monster fan club has however denied rumours that the creature could have died due to a sighting that was reported last summer.

The Loch Ness monster remains the most well known lake monster legend in the world and while thousands of tourists flock to Scotland each year to catch a glimpse of it most experts remain doubtful that a large unknown creature really exists in the dark, cold waters of the Loch.
A new documentary examines the possibility that the monster might be extinct as its reported appearances become increasingly rare. Gary Campbell, president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, said only one sighting, made just off the Clansman Hotel on 6th June, 2009, was judged by him to have been a credible report.

That's the first time I can think of that I've ever agreed with anything you've said on these boards, take a picture mattshark I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship just like in the movies. I'm glad it was over our homeland.

Well apart from the Whisky, the Moray Firth and its wildlife and the scenery. The thing is, a lot people come to the area purely because of Nessie, and only then they start to see what else the area has to offer. Nessie is a gateway, something to lure the tourists in, and it works... so i say... Long Live Nessie!

Irrational belief never dies. True, irrational belief is one thing you can not disprove, regardless of the evidence you present. wait.... I guess I could just point to my quote over there...
