Loch Ness Monster Mystery May Have an Extremely Simple Explanation

A man who has spent nearly 25 years searching for the elusive Loch Ness monster has concluded that the creature is, in fact, a very large catfish. Steve Feltham told Sky News that he was not claiming to have solved the mystery that has baffled scientists and amateur enthusiasts for more than 70 years, but “looking at all the evidence, speaking to eyewitnesses, the most likely solution is a Wels catfish.”
The 52-year-old who left life as he knew it to move to Loch Ness and try to solve the mystery, is determined to not let legend simply remain legend. “This is an explainable phenomena,” he said, adding, “There is something to be explained in Loch Ness.”
First spotted on May 2, 1933, though a legend since the 6th century, when a legend of the Irish monk St. Columba relates that he banished a “water beast” to the depths of the River Ness, which flows from the northern end of the loch. Nessie has drawn millions to visit this body of water in the Scottish highlands where she is said to live. (rest of the story at source)
