Mystery Of Loch Ness Monster Solved?

Michael Garcia - October 11, 2016

One of the most famous cryptozoological creatures is the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie. For centuries, people have reported seeing some kind of dragon/dinosaur-type creature living in the Scottish lake. But no one has come up with concrete evidence that the monster is really swimming around in the murky water. One man, Stuart Feltham, thinks he's figured it out. Nessie is nothing more than a giant catfish. Yes, a catfish. Those deep sea dwellers that taste good fried up with some hush puppies, (I'm from the Gulf Coast). Feltham has been studying the loch for over twenty years and has determined that the thing people keep seeing is nothing more than a big fish. He says,

"I have to be honest. I just don't think that Nessie is a prehistoric monster. What a lot of people have reported seeing would fit in with the description of the catfish with its long curved back."

This guy is not thinking things through. For one thing, what is going to happen to the tourism industry in the Loch Ness area if Nessie is just a catfish? Thousands of people would be out of work. What else is going on up there besides the monster? Also, who would mistake a friggin catfish with a giant dinosaur creature? Are people in Scotland stupid or near-sighted? I doubt it. I'm not convinced.
