Loch Ness Monster Finally Identified
Forensic Artist and private investigator William McDonald, finally identifies what Loch Ness Monster may be.
(PRWEB) April 7, 2005 -- 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 Nessie 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 Kill Zone. 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 found wedged between the deers 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 students 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 Nessie tooth.
Mr. McDonald is coordinating the students efforts to have the tooth returned. He can be reached at Argonaut-Grey Wolf Productions in Mesa, AZ. PHONE: 480-330-7553.
This is what the other site says, along with pictures of the 'tooth'.
"Im a college student in the Midwest U.S. In March (2005) my roommate and I went to the U.K and spent our last two days at Loch Ness. The boat rental season hadnt started so we hired a local who took us on a private boat tour.
After a few hours we came across the remains of a dead deer. The animal had literally been ripped in half - hind quarters gone, its spine was broken and severed. There were huge bloody gashes, teeth marks and a bizarre bony protrusion sticking out of an exposed rib. Using a screwdriver, we cracked open the ribcage and pried it loose. It was a tooth - about 4 inches long, barbed and very sharp!
I'm about the biggest skeptic you'll ever meet, but this tooth was real, and whatever ate that deer had to have been huge. Our Scottish local told us there are no bears in the area. Excited, we signaled a passing boat to join us. Big mistake! The man told us he was the water bailiff, flashed credentials, then confiscated the tooth and the video tape that was in my camera, claiming we could get everything back from the Highland Authorities as long as we cooperated. Fortunately, he didnt find the earlier footage in my backpack.
We wasted our last day trying to get the tooth back. Most thought we were nuts, one guy who knew the water bailiff threatened to "take our passports if we made trouble." Now we're angry and want the tooth back. I tracked down a Loch Ness expert through some blogs who discovered fresh animal tracks last December. (http://loch-movie.tripod.com) Mr. McDonald says the tooth will prove his own theories apparently - developed for some author. He swears he knows what the creature is and has investors ready to buy the tooth from us.
Please look at our footage. Send the links to everyone you know. Anyone whose effort help us to recover the tooth from the Highland authorities will receive a $5,000 reward! You can contact me by clicking here or contact Bill McDonald at email@example.com"
I went to college in Aberdeen, Scotland. Every spring there is a Nessie sighting or controversy to get people to Inverness. There is NO other reason to go there.
That picture is part of a crab claw,
Are you sure that didn't come from an Orc?
Is Kirstie Alley swimming again?
Don't look much like a toof do it?
Bit late for April Fools Day???
Just an uninformed engineer's opinion.
That looks more like an antler than a tooth.
Notice the cruve of the tooth, not look at the root; it doesn't look structurally sound. So consider, we have a predatory mammal that has never been sighted, with a tooth 4 inches long, that isn't structrually sound nor does it have signs of wear (notice the tip). Sorry, my BS detector is going off.
How long has Nessie been around? Shouldn't it be dead by now?
> That picture is part of a crab claw, ...
Looks more like a pronghorn antler to me,
but in any event, not a tooth.
Someone is gaming someone here.
That's what I thought.
Sort of like a Pronghorn.
Could be a small antler of a deer(?). Wait a minute, wasn`t that take from a dead deer?
Celtic Ping list!
My funness about the Loch Ness... Monster :)
The thing is obvious. It's a dragon.
It looks like some kind of little horn to me. I can readily imagine that a deer might have been killed by another deer and that local dogs and foxes might have devoured parts of the corpse. People in general, particularly students, are so unused to the rather shocking sight of "nature red in a tooth and claw" that they can't see a dead animal in an objective way.
I think a wyvern...
Your antler guess is probably correct.
