Champ: The Lake Champlain Monster?

More at Skeptical Inquirer July 2003

Lake Champlain forms the border between Vermont and New York, stretching down from Canada at its northernmost point south to Whitehall, New York. It is also, many people believe, home to America’s version of the Loch Ness monster. “Champ,” as the creature is called, has allegedly been seen by hundreds of witnesses. The lake (and therefore the monster) is named for explorer Samuel de Champlain, who is often–but erroneously–said to have been the first to report the creature. Sought after by P.T. Barnum, featured on Unsolved Mysteries, and “officially” protected by both the New York State Assembly and the Vermont Legislature, Champ remains a modern mystery.

  4. The thing that gets me is why do people only show one photo? Even if it was an old camera, you would not take just A photo… you would take several and I would love to see the others taken. One photo suggests fake. Sorry looks more like a log to me…
