Our old friend Nessie has gone “missing” and there have been no sightings of her for more a while now. The world’s most famous monster has gone missing with Nessie’s official recorder admitting he is “worried” that there has been no sightings of her for eight months. The Home Office recently rejected a cheeky bid by a group of artists from Glasgow to grant the Loch Ness Monster permanent UK residency after Brexit. But Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, said it appears Nessie has left the country already!
Ihope Razzi doesn’t read this because we have news of a Monster to report. For years we have heard reports of sightings of Nessie the Loch Ness Monster and now it turns out she has a lesser-known cousin according to researchers. Morag is a mysterious creature known to inhabit the depths of Loch Morar in the Lochaber area of the Highlands. Ancient scripts have been uncovered by the Carmichael Watson project at the University of Edinburgh library, thought to date from 1902, and they paint a conflicting view of Morag.
Back in 1994 a photograph of the Loch Ness Monster was confirmed as a hoax. The story began in 1933 when a big-game hunter by the name of Marmaduke Wetherell was employed by the Daily Mail newspaper to investigate the story of the Loch Ness Monster. He went to Loch Ness and claimed to have found some footprints. However, when they were sent to scientists for analysis, they turned out to be hippopotamus footprints. A prankster had used a hippopotamus’ foot umbrella-stand to make the footprints and Wetherell had been taken in by the hoax. However, this did not stop the Daily Mirror from ridiculing Mr Wetherell in the newspaper.
