(Redirected to Bear Lake monster article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bear Lake Monster is a mythological lake monster appearing in local folk-lore near Bear Lake, on the UtahIdaho border.

The myth originally grew from articles written in the 19th century by Joseph C. Rich, a Mormon colonizer in the area, purporting to report second-hand accounts of sightings of the creature. However, he later recanted the stories.[1]

Subsequent alleged reports have given conflicting descriptions of the beast, with some describing it as similar to a walrus and others saying that it closely resembles a Sauropterygia and still others describing it as a larger-than-average carp. The last reported sighting of the monster was in 2004.[1]

The Bear Lake monster also appears in Animal Planet's "Lost Tapes".
