Monster in Zurich lake ?

Hi guys,

I heard rumours of a monster in Zurich lake waters. There are people affirming having seen something big diving around, like a shadow passing by really quickly. I also heard people saying they saw something coming out of the water, some large and strange animal and then plunging right away into the water...

Can anybody confirm this ?, has anyone seen something similar ?

Thanks

Re: Monster in Zurich lake ?

Maybe Zurich is looking to scotland for tourist ideas? Probably needs a catchy new name, The zurisee monster?

Scientific study profiling staring tendencies has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the creature is indeed Swiss.

Re: Monster in Zurich lake ?

I'm totally serious in here. I've started a quest for this strange animal everybody is talking about.

Well, winter is coming, so it will probably go into deep hibernation ... again ... and re-surface in Springtime?

If it lives in there, then how did it get in there in the first place? It must have had a Dad and a Mom and maybe some siblings - and no-one has been eaten yet, so it`s probably harmless and nothing to worry about.

Or .. it could be a form of Alien (UFO style) with a base below ..... ? In which case it must be intelligent - and knows that without a permit it will be deported.

If you really really want to quest, then I can offer some very good advice on how to make contact, which could be complicated but worthwhile if you want to succeed. Personally I would just leave it in peace.

Ooooh goody as I'm sooooo looking forward to the Swiss re-make of the late 90s German film "Das Biest im Bodensee" (Beast in the Lake).
