It’s one of those time-tested mysteries we all love to discuss. However unlikely, the Loch Ness monster is a great worldly legend. There have not only been witness accounts, but explorers setting out to find the elusive creature. No matter your stance on Nessie, it’s a part of our culture. Could this be the day the creature was finally and credibly spotted?
A resident of the United Kingdom thinks it’s a possibility. After Richard Mavor captured some drone footage during a canoeing excursion in Scotland, the outdoorsman is a bit baffled. While putting together a vlog, Mavor reviewed some of his footage. In it, he notices a Nessie-shaped figure in the water.
While it’s not as big as claims from previous sightings, it still possesses a long neck with a short, stumpy body. The creature is seen near the shore. It measures about 15 feet in length.
During his camping adventure, Mavor sets out to capture his experience with friends. The rocky shores are surrounded by trees and green vegetation. A few minutes into his drone footage, an oddly-shaped figure appears to surface.
It looks unlike any other known sea life. It’s definitely not a shark or fish. Could it be the first account of a credible Loch Ness monster sighting? The jury’s still out. However, the bizarre encounter just adds to the mystery.
Loch Ness Monster Sightings Increase in 2021
While we don’t know every creature lurking beneath the ocean’s watery depths, the search for the Loch Ness monster isn’t new. Sightings date back to 1933. The famous Nessie is captured on film, however, this was later debunked as a hoax.
Still, sightings of the creature have continued to captivate conspiracy theorists alike. Most recently, those sightings have increased. In 2021, witnesses have sworn to see – and capture on film – the sea monster in Texas, Ireland, England and China.
There’s even an Official Loch Ness Monster Sighting Registry which records these sightings. Most recently, Weiming Jiang of Jiaozhou City, China said she saw several suspicious black dots in the water. They quickly disappeared after hovering for several minutes. Though Nessie has been seen around in the world in various spots, this is the first account in China.
Days before, an Irishman echoed a sighting of these black dots.
“They were 2 black objects throwing up a lot of water, and from the distance were large looking in the water,” the Loch Ness monster tracker reported. “Then the one on the right submerged, and then came up again. The one on the left did the same thing intermittently. They were visible for up to 3 minutes, and then there was nothing.”
Despite these mysterious sightings, confirmation of the creature is yet to be validated.
