I have always been intrigued by the legendary “Loch Ness Monster”, so I finally went to Scotland hoping to catch it on film. Reports over the years suggested that the animal is a plesiosaur, which was a marine reptile that existed during the dinosaur era. After I arrived at the lake, I set up a video camera on a tripod near the shore. I threw a net full of fish slightly offshore to use as bait, and then I left for a couple of hours.

When I came back, I saw the net had been ripped to pieces and all the fish were gone. Whatever happened, I had it on film. I gave the tape to some local marine biologists who viewed it before I did. They told me that I had irrefutable proof that the Loch Ness Monster is a plesiosaur. However they said that one thing on the tape has caused some considerable confusion. 

As I watched the tape, I saw a large creature about 30 feet long gradually appear offshore. Its’ neck was around 10 feet long and it probably weighed around 2 tons. It savagely tore the net apart and gobbled down the fish. After all the fish were gone, it turned around and used its’ powerful flippers to propel it back down to the dark, murky depths of the lake.

“Here’s the problem”, said one of biologists in a Scottish accent.

He rewound the tape and froze it. He then showed a close-up of the plesiosaur’s neck. It looked like it was wearing a primitive pet collar. When he zoomed in on the collar, I saw some engraved words that read; “If lost, please return to Fred Flintstone”.

As in many mysteries, this new information raises more questions than it answers.
