Has the Loch Ness Monster Moved On?
You wonder what happened. You wonder what happened to those now-skeptical Nessie hunters who at one point had been on the hunt for adventure and Nessie. What was it that drove them from their pursuit? Well, some people think that Nessie has... died.
From the beginning people have always been a bit skeptical and have always had their doubts. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but why now? That's a question that has already, to some people, been answered. There have been very strange theories about what Nessie really is from swimming deer to giant eels, but the strangest I've heard is the theory that was started in 2006 by a museum curator by the name of Neil Clark. He had noted that a circus came to Inverness in 1933 and was run by a guy named Bertram Mills and he decide that since Nessie was in the papers so much, he would take advantage of the situation and offer 20,000 pounds for her capture. Well, Neil Clark had a theory that one of Mills' elephants is Nessie swimming in Loch Ness and its head and back are the humps and its trunk is the eerie head that people have been talking about for years.
One of the many respected veteran Nessie hunters is a man named Robert Rines and I have written about him in another one of my blog items. Check it out.
