Loch Ness Monster

Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?

By Brian K.

Everyone has heard of monsters under the bed. But what about monsters in the lake? Some people believe that a real monster (affectionately named Nessie) inhabits the lake called Loch Ness in Scotland.

The legend of the Lock Ness Monster dates back to the 6th century, when an Irish Monk, Saint Columba, encountered a vicious creature in the River Ness. Reports described the monster with a large body and long narrow neck. Since these early encounters, other people have claimed to see the Lock Ness Monster. The most famous is Dr. Robert Wilson, who captured a photograph of the monster’s head and neck.

Over the years, many teams have visited Loch Ness to try to discover the monster. In the 1930s, a group of 20 men watched the lake with binoculars for five weeks. Recently, more technologically savvy methods have been used, including sonar and satellite tracking.

Not everyone believes the pictures and reported sightings of the Loch Ness monster. Some believe Dr. Wilson’s photo is not the Loch Ness monster, but the head of an elephant . Some sightings are probably optical illusions. Other people believe the reports are just hoaxes.

Even though there is no proof that Nessie exists, many people continue to believe in the Loch Ness Monster.

What do YOU think? Is she fact or fiction?
