I just love this crazy stuff. Something just prehistoric about it, as many of us muddle about in our urban/suburban fog or escape to our somewhat gentrified wilderness experiences. The Lake Chany area has reportedly lost 19 people and many have not been found. Reportedly a large creature has been seen. They would know their sturgeon. Something lurks. Large lake, but not deep. Poor recovery efforts? Limited resources? No sonar research by some TV freak that likes to dive into brown waters to wrestle alligators or grab bizarre creatures in Africa? Seems like someone will eventually put in the effort like they did on Loch Ness. The creature, if it exists, is alive. Not a poor washed up Montauk something or other.
“Those who have reportedly seen the creature have likened it to the famous Loch Ness monster, describing a long neck, ‘huge tail’ and ‘snake-like’ appearance.
The latest in a string of deaths came last week, as a 59-year-old man was dragged beneath the surface of Lake Chany, located in the province of Novosibirsk.
‘I was with my friend… some 300 yards from the shore,’ said 60-year-old Vladimir Golishev told the Daily Mail. ”He hooked something huge on his bait, and he stood up in the boat to reel it in.
‘But it pulled with such force that he overturned the boat. I was in shock – I had never seen anything like it in my life.”
