The Odd Blog (I warned you about)

Brigette Horvath knew she saw something strange in Cameron Lake on Vancouver Island two years ago; and, a team of researchers say she might be right.

Brigette states that at the time she didn't know what the strange creature might be; but, she grabbed her camera anyway and managed to get one picture before the batteries failed.

Cryptozoologists who search for animals which are considered to be legendary or otherwise nonexistent by mainstream biology spent Saturday, Sept. 19 on the lake searching for the sea creature.

On the first pass they detected a couple of large contact at the bottom of the lake, about 45 metres deep. On the return trip, the second pass, they found a much more substantial contact.

"Something just went 'ping' on the alarm on the fish finder and we saw this absolutely massive object in the midst of various fish," said John Kirk, president of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club.

Kirk points out that four more passes were made and the contact remained stable. This made the possibility of it being a school of fish highly unlikely as they would tend to scatter eventually.

"We were quite stunned that there was something that big in the lake and it was in about 60 feet of water, less than 30 yards from shore, it was quite amazing," he said.

Brigette was driving along Highway 4, July 30, 2007, when a strange semi-circle in the lake's waters caught her attention. She is not the only person to claim to have seen something strange in Cameron Lake.

"You could see like a serpent shape," claims Horvath. "It wasn't logs," she said. "It wasn't waves. There were no boats in the area. It was, like, right there. You could actually see a large fish, (an) object, no, not an object, something alive."

John Kirk says that due to the underwater camera being lost and the deterioration of the weather as the fall and winter approach, the search will have to be postponed until next year; but, the team has narrowed the possibilities.

"Maybe it's a sturgeon, maybe it's a giant sterile could be a massive type of salamander," Kirk said. "Or it could be something that we're completely unaware of at this point."

While Kirk says, "I'm not going to the extent to say there's anything exotic down there, there's just something big"; he does add that he doesn't expect to find any sea monsters in Cameron Lake.
