Breaking: New “Champ Video”

There is breaking news from Vermont of new footage of an alleged lake monster (“Champ”?) from Lake Champlain.

This appears to be a developing story in the state, and I will update further details as they make their way to me.

The next stage of analysis must begin now, and, as with all Lake Monster accounts, more investigative work remains ahead.

I shot this video of SOMETHING in the lake at Oakledge Park on Sunday (05/31/09) early am (0530 or so). I don’t know what the eff it is but it’s definitely not normal…Was anyone else out and about around Oakledge on Sunday just after sunrise?


UPDATE: See here for a variety of videos that may be viewed to compare other animals taped swimming in creeks, rivers, and lakes.

June 3 UPDATE:

The name and background of the 37-year-old individual who took the footage has been revealed and enhanced enlarged photos have been added to the greatly revised posting, “Media and Others Take Closer Look At ‘Champ Video’” of June 3rd. Please examine those images, and leave comments there, if you wish.
