cryptid-wendigo:
On March 31, 1972, a group of people from the Loch Ness Phenomena Bureau were having breakfast in a hotel with a group of people from the Flamingo Park Zoo. After the hotel received an anonymous call, the team was interrupted from their meal and told that there was something strange in the Loch. Upon getting to the shore of the Loch, the team saw the object: a large, dark shape about 300 yards out. They made their way out on their boat and around 9:00am, the team pulling in what was thought to be the dead body of the Loch Ness Monster.

Just hours later, the news spread like wildfire. People began to gather around the body to try to get a good look (some even reported touching the creature). Michael Rushton of the Edinburgh Zoo soon came to take a look at the possible monster but did not take long in his verdict. A male elephant seal. Not only was it just a seal, but Rushton pointed out the fact that the creature looked as though it had been frozen.
But who put it there? None other than one of Flamingo Park Zoo’s educational officers, John Shields. He was also the person that called in about the creature in the Loch. He timed the event perfectly to line up with April Fools’ Day in order to fool his colleagues, but admitted that the joke got far out of hand.
