Lake Champlain's OTHER MONSTER!

A New York man recalls an encounter that his sister had on the shores of Lake Champlain during a picnic in 1957. She later stated that it resembled 'The Creature From the Black Lagoon.'

I received the following account:

“Back in 1957 my mother, father, and little sister who was 6 were picnicking near Rouse's Point, New York on the shore of Lake Champlain. At one point my sister walked to the end of a dock and looked into the water. She turned to leave and heard a noise behind her. She turned and saw two black webbed hands appear at the end of the dock. Then suddenly a child-size head appeared.

At this point, she screamed and ran back to us and told us what she saw. Her scream had already alarmed us and we were running towards her to see what was wrong. After she told us what happened, my father told us to stay here and went to inspect the dock where he found two web-like hand prints at its end. Well, the picnic was over.

Many times I heard my father relate this story to friends and relatives. Sometimes they would nod their heads and recount their odd stories of the lake.

Two more things, years later when my sister saw the old movie 'The Creature From the Black Lagoon' she swears that it was similar to the creature she saw that day. When my father, who liked to fish on the lake, passed away, I was going through his belongings to find, at the bottom of his tackle box, a loaded .45 caliber pistol. Odd for a tackle box but I guess he thought better safe than sorry.

I'm 70 and it makes no difference to me if you believe this story or not, I'm just relating what happened years ago while on a picnic. Thank you.” R
