Chicago Sea Serpent?
Is This The Lake Michigan Monster Caught on a Security Cam?
It’s not widely known, but over the years, there have been a few isolated reports of a sea serpent type creature spotted in Lake Michigan.
It seems that between 1867 and 1890, local newspapers reported sightings of a visibly scaled serpent some 40-50 feet in length, very dark blue, with a grayish-white belly. In 1867, a fisherman named Joseph Muhlke gave a very detailed description of the creature, claiming it came within some 20 feet of his boat. It was swimming about a mile and a half off the shore of the south side of Chicago.
Others claimed to have heard it making roaring sounds in the distance that were said to have sounded something like a bull. But sightings have been fleeting and few and far between since then. That is until this security camera footage of something interesting in the water at a Lake Michigan dock surfaced in 2012.
Could this be footage of the creature in question? You decide.
