Ogopogo, Canada’s Loch Ness Monster, Caught on Tape [Video]

loch ness monster

The Loch Ness monster gets all the press but Ogopogo could be the real thing. A man visiting Lake Okanagan in British Columbia caught the mythical creature, Ogopogo, on film.

Richard Huls, the man who filmed Ogopogo, said:

“It was not going with the waves. It was not a wave obviously, just a darker color. The size and the fact that they were not parallel with the waves made me think it had to be something else.”

Here’s the video of Ogopogo.

So is this Ogopogo sighting proof that Canada has its own Loch Ness monster? Or is this just another hoax?

MSNBC reports that the Ogopogo traces its roots back to a Canadian Indian mythical beast called N’ha-a-itk. The Indians used to sacrifice animals to N’Ha-a-itk so that they could have save passage over Lake Okanagan.

But there has never actually been any proof of a sea monster in Lake Okanagan, despite the fact that the lake has been searched many times. In 1991, a TV program financed a high-tech exploration of Lake Okanagan. But despite the submarine and underwater gadgets, no evidence of an Ogopogo was found.

Still, several people claim that they have seen Ogopogo in Lake Okanagan. Here’s a video of a few Ogopogo sightings. Most of these sightings turned out to be logs, not mythical beasts.

So, did Richard Huls really spot Ogopogo? Probably not. MSNBC reports that Lake Okanagan has tens of thousands of logs floating just under its surface. So yeah, this Ogopogo sighting is probably just another log.

    If they can get clear images of the Burning Man festivities from space, then they can DEFINITELY can get a clear image of the Loch Ness with its head out dancing in the water.

    It's the ogopogo who's responsible for making all those crop circles, building stonehenge, and those creepy chemtrail lights! duh!

    I find this tasteless..Yahoo can't throw up a banner to thank Veterans, but they can put up banners for all kinds of other events, both meaningful and meaningless..really? I think it's time for me to change my home page.

    sure hope these people aren't responsible for capturing on film anything REALLY important.. I find it extremely curious that the only time the camera is focused and steady is when it's NOT on the 'creature'.

    I think they need to control the camera better.. there's to much moving and bouncing around..
    "your on a none moving ground, so why all the movement with the camera?" lol.
    Oh and by the way… "it looks like just waves to me"… no head , no body, NU THING!
    go get a job and stop wasting your film on stupid, HOPELESS things.
