Von Muggenthaler declined to speculate on the size, nature or physical characteristics of the creature her equipment monitored. She acknowledged there is no evidence the lake is home to a freshwater whale or dolphin. It's still a bit of a leap of faith from here to accepting that a large predator unknown to science lives somewhere in the lake. If there is no evidence that freshwater whales or dolphins live in the lake, then perhaps she's just found some... y dont they drain the lake or scuba dive 4 a den or sumthin?

It could be that what they detected is something known, after all things have to be able to get in and out of the lake, so it could have been anything.

i suggest a rather large fishing rod, capture it, use it as the latest advertising gimmick for microsoft, then after that chop it up and sell it to mcdonalds.... seriously though if it is a huge monster like a plesiosaur how the hell would it sustain its self small fish aren't going to quench its appetite especially huge predators like that or maybe i'm wrong lol i'm no zoologist.

Not true, Blood Angel, whale sharks and humpback whales both eath small fish and crustaceans by filtering them out of the water. They are some of the largest animals on the planet. Why don't they sound the lake like they did Loch Ness?
