Transcript of The Loch Ness Monster

THE LOCH NESS MONSTER The monster is called Nessie of Loch Ness. It is supposed to come from The Great Glen, an enormous gash in the earth that splits the Scottish Highlands into two. Nessie has a long, tapering neck, about 6 feet long, and a smallish head with a devious look about it, and a huge hump behind. Its length is estimated to be about thirty feet. It's a friendly creature, as long as people don't disturb its peace… Nessie seems to have appeared in 1933 after a new road was built along the edge of the Loch. Then was the time when the number of reports from residents increased. The first of these came on April 14 when the owners of an inn in Drumnadrochit, the Mackays, observed an "enormous animal rolling and plunging" in the Loch. Nessie doesn't have any special qualities or powers, apart from the fear it causes to people, since it is only an animal, therefore something people cannot fully understand. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings. Related to this controversial monster, throughout history have been created films, videos and books, photographs have been taken, there have been investigations, searches, scans and other works. Some histories The Irish monk Saint Columba was staying in the land of the Picts with his companions when he came across the locals burying a man by the River Ness. They explained that the man had been swimming the river when he was attacked by a "water beast" that had mauled him and dragged him under. They tried to rescue him in a boat. The monster came after Columba and he made the cross sign and comanded: Don't touch the man and Nessie halted immediately. Saint Columba (6th century) George Spicer and his wife saw "a most extraordinary form of animal" cross the road in front of their car.
A motorcyclist named Arthur Grant claimed to have nearly hit the creature while approaching Abriachan on the north-eastern shore, at about 1 a.m. on a moonlit night. The creature saw him and crossed the road back into the loch. Grant said he dismounted and followed it to the loch, but only saw ripples. A veterinary student also described the monster. However some believe this story was intended as a humorous explanation of a motorcycle accident. Spicers (1933) Inverness Shire Chief Constable William Fraser wrote a letter stating that it was beyond doubt the monster existed. His letter expressed concern regarding a hunting party that had arrived armed with a specially-made gun and were determined to catch the monster "dead or alive". He believed his power to protect the monster from the hunters was "very doubtful". Chief Constable
William Fraser (1938) C.B. Farrel said that he saw a big creature, in this opportunity out of the water. C. B. Farrel (1943) Bibliography: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/06/24/louisiana-schools-teach-that-existence-of-loch-ness-monster-proves-creationism/
