The Monster-Reptile of Chatham Island

Posted by: Nick Redfern on December 22nd, 2016

F.W. Kemp was an officer with the British Columbia, Canada, Provincial Archives. Along with his wife and son, Kemp had an extraordinary encounter midway through the 1930s. It was an encounter with something that can only be classified as a monster. Indeed, Kemp’s very own words make that abundantly clear. So impressed was he by the encounter, Kemp contacted the media. His account reads as follows:

“On August 10, 1932, I was with my wife and son on Chatham Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. My wife called my attention to a mysterious something coming through the channel between Strong Tide Island and Chatham Island. Imagine my astonishment on observing a huge creature with head out of the water traveling about four miles per hour against the tide. Even at that speed a considerable wash was thrown on the rocks, which gave me the impression that it was more reptile than serpent to make so much displacement.

  1. Goodfoot responds:

    “More reptile than serpent”? I’m no scientist, but “serpent” is another word for “snake”, and snakes are – well, you get my point.

  2. thescaly1 responds:

    Its head above the water, wash thrown upon the rocks indicating the size of the unseen body beneath the surface?

    Like Goodfoot, I see problems with this story from the start.

    My skeptical view-point won’t let me draw conclusions from such assumptions, for or against the conclusions that are presented by the witness.
