They have kept him from returing to the Loch for 5 years now.. I have great doubt that he will make it this year either. I hope I am wrong I hope he does make it, and I hope beyond hope that he gets the dna he is seeking. It is high time that Nessie is proven to exist. He is one of the last of the firsts.

But what if he goes on a mad killing spree and kills all of the little baby nessies and their parents?? i would cry!!

I agree with the people who are trying to stop him. Lets just say for a moment that Nessie does's obviously going to be a monumental discovery...a fantastic species of mammal(?) that as survived numerous ice ages, mass extinctions, being hunted and avoided discovery in these harsh modern times. And this clown is going to go down there...find it...and shove a sharp stick into it's flesh. Is this the guy of guy we want discovering Nessie? He seems more interested in the science of the specimen than he does of it's welfare.

Some of you guys act like if there is a Ness creature, that there is only one. Now he's either the longest living critter in the pond or there are enough to keep the species going. Even if he dose kill one, its just ONE. There will be more. Or- none!

Well before he even gets the chance to harpoon the creature if it exists, he has to actually find it and no one to thie day has ever been successful in that enterprise!

Thats because the only people to see it only have a camera, not a harpoon. I know, disguise the harpoon to look like a camera and nessie will pose for him while its being SHOT!

Or- none! 459904[/snapback] What a lovely thought. Yeah, lets kill one for the sake of it, possibly a child-bearing or pregnant female. Doesn't matter, there'll be more... Hmm.
