After nearly 1,500 years of conjecture, it appears the Loch Ness Monster may finally be identified. According to American Forensic Artist and private investigator William McDonald, the famous lake monster known as ÂNessieÂ is neither a plesiosaur or prehistoric reptile, but a real, predatory species of water animal possessing the ability to hunt on land.
In the winter months of 2004, McDonald photographed tracks left by a large animal on a mud-covered Loch Ness shoreline in an area south of Invermoriston, just off the A-82 highway. Movie footage may be viewed at http://loch-movie.tripod.com. Weeks later, McDonald was contacted by two American university students who had just returned from a Spring Break trip to Britain. The students provided McDonald with video tape footage of the remains of a 200-pound Highland red deer carcass, found in a boat-only accessible area known to local fishermen as a ÂKill Zone.Â The deer appears to have been torn in half, its pelt ravaged. (there are no bears in the Scottish Highlands). But the most shocking find was a shed animal tooth Â found wedged between the deerÂs exposed ribcage. The tooth is barbed, well-rooted, and measured nearly four inches in length!
According to the three eyewitnesses on the video, shortly after the find, the tooth and several video tapes were confiscated by a local water bailiff. Highland authorities were uncooperative in the studentsÂ efforts to have their find returned. The salvaged footage and photos of the tooth have been posted at http://www.lochnesstooth.com, along with a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the return of the ÂNessieÂ tooth.
Mr. McDonald is coordinating the studentsÂ efforts to have the tooth returned. He can be reached at Argonaut-Grey Wolf Productions in Mesa, AZ.
