Is This Champ? The Legendary “Monster” of Lake Champlain?




Is This Champ? The Legendary “Monster” of Lake Champlain?
By Dorraine Fisher

Lake Champlain is a 125 mile (201 km) long strip of freshwater lake located between New York State and Vermont, extending all the way up into Quebec, Canada. It is named for Samuel De Champlain, the founder of Quebec. But the most intriguing thing about it is the legend of Champ, the monster that’s believed to live in the lake.

Many believe the creature could possibly be a relic plesiousaur, a dinosaur believed to have become extinct during the early part of the Jurassic period, but somehow managed to survive after the lake dried up somewhat and was cut off from the larger body of salt water which included the Atlantic Ocean.

Many people in the area believe the stories are just legend with no real basis except to boost tourism around the lake. But since Champlain’s time, there have been hundreds of supposed sightings.
One of the most notable scientists searching for evidence of Champ’s existence is Scott Mardis who has graciously allowed me to share this with our followers. According to Mardis, a man named Eric Olson was out taking his morning walk in Oakledge Park near Burlington, Vermont , when he captured this video on his cell phone.
Let us know what you think.
