Think the Loch Ness Monster Doesn’t Exist? Think Again

Could this be actual footage of a creature similar to the Loch Ness Monster?

Craig McCaa, who is the Public Affairs Specialist at the Bureau of Land Managment Fairbanks Office, enjoys taking pictures on the Chena River. However, this time, he didn’t realize he might have the opportunity to film Nessie.

Take a look at this video and, if you like your mysteries with light shed on them, read the current theories below.

Here’s the video:

McCaa walked the University Avenue bridge when he witnessed this elongated figure moving back and forth in the icy water.

After he posted it to the “Bureau of Land Mangement – Alaska” Facebook page, speculation ran rampant, with people saying it could be a sturgeon, a piece of string, or even a creature similar to Loch Ness Monster.

McCaa watched the shape, which he estimated to be between 12 and 15 feet long, swim back and forth in the river.

As of 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game believe that it was just a piece of rope attached to the pier.

The rope probably froze overnight, causing it to rise to the surface and give the appearance of an animal or object swerving back and forth in the current.

Tanana River Management Biologist, Klaus Wuttig, has lived in the Fairbanks region since 1993 and has never heard of a giant sturgeon spotted in the Chena River.

(However, that does not mean there aren’t any).

What do you think? Is the figure a giant sea monster or simply a frozen rope?
