Searching the Loch Ness of Newfoundland

Does “Cressie” swim the waters of Crescent Lake in Newfoundland? Sightings of this giant creature have been reported for years, much like the Loch Ness monster, but no evidence has been found. In this article from Skeptical Inquirer, Joe Nickell goes in search of the elusive creature.

Quest for the Giant Eel

Sightings of a “monster” in the lake date back to the turn of the last century when a resident known as “Grandmother Anthony” spied a giant serpentine creature while she was picking berries. From the 1940s to the present, there have been a dozen or so sightings, although without photographs to date. Most descriptions are of a dark, eel-like creature, up to twenty-five or more feet long.

  1. I’m not going to say who I am but that thing is in that lake. I never believed it myself before until I seen it with my two eyes. It was back in 2005 coming out of Roberts Arm. I was about 7 minutes out of Roberts Arm town when this 3 humps in the water got my attention.
    When I came back from Springdale going back to Roberts Arm I remembered what I seen. I remember the spot to this day and it was gone. It looked like 3 half tires out the water with 2.5 feet between each hump
