Introducing Neckie, Seneca Lake, NY’s answer to the Loch Ness Monster

The video below was submitted to Cryptomundo by reader Jeff Koyen.

The commentary below is taken from his website, Caveat Viatar.

It starts slow, but watch the whole thing.

Sure, it’s probably fake. But I doubt it’s an editing/CGI trick. Because, let’s be honest, if you’re going to fake a monster video, you’d do a better job of it. At 2:14 and 4:25, for instance, Neckie looks like a giraffe suffering from rigor mortis. At 3:53, you’d swear it’s an inner tube being raised out of the water. It should be noted that neither would be an easy task for a diver hovering just beneath the surface.

Maybe the user who posted the video is right: It’s Caddy’s brother. That is, another specimen of Cadborosaurus willsi, aka the Sea Serpent of British Columbia’s Cadboro Bay.

I’m not drawing any conclusions; that would violate my fortean nature. Anyone else care to be the expert? Scott Bowen? Loren Coleman?

And yes, please credit me with naming New York’s newest monster.Jeff Koyen
