One of the world’s greatest mysteries is on the cusp of being solved by Otago University Professor Neil Gemmell – whether or not the Loch Ness monster actually exists. For the first time ever, he’s scouring the waters of Scotland’s Loch Ness to capture the DNA of anything and everything living in it. If Nessie is alive and kicking – or paddling – its DNA will be in the lake, and is likely to be picked up by Prof Gemmell and his team. His method involves taking water samples from 300 different locations in the loch, and at different depths.
A Lady contacted me through Facebook and she shared her story about a strange animal she encountered whilst out walking the dog.
Witness Account: In the early 1990’s I rented part of a large house in the Costwolds in the vicinity of Meon Hill. The house was surrounded by private land and farmland and it afforded me the opportunity to walk my dogs wherever I wanted for as long as I wanted without seeing another soul.
One day I had not long left the house and passed from a mown field into a wild overgrown one when I had an overwhelming feeling that something or someone else was nearby. I stopped and my dogs ran on ahead. I scanned all around me and saw nothing, but such was the feeling of not being alone that I persisted and finally looked further afield to see a gingery head and shoulders just above the long grass.
He described the “thing” as wolf like, it was dark, hairy and crouched over, as the witness backed off the almost doglike thing growled at him, This account is one of the many “wolf like” creature reports in the UK.
