Some time during September, the Discovery Channel will air brand new footage of no less than a dozen swimming specimens of Cadborosaurus willsi, B.C.s 2nd best known (after Sasquatch) cryptid, and the one with the best claim to reality:
The footage was obtained by a Washington state fishing boat captain (his name is known to myself and other cryptozoological investigators who have looked at the footage) who fishes in Alaskan waters in the summer. He and his two sons were on the deck of their boat when they noticed a herd of dark coloured creatures with serrated backs being chased down a channel by a pod of beluga whales. They were stunned to see these animals as they resembled no known animal they had ever seen in their years of fishing.
This is from an account by cryptozoologist John Kirk, who has seen the footage in question:
As the creatures pull level with the boat one is able to see two larger ones protecting what looks like a juvenile from the pursuing belugas. The serrated backs are clearly visible at times. Then one the creatures turns to look in the general direction of the camera and I must say I was stunned because it looked like a living breathing version of the famed Naden Harbour carcass obtained in 1937.
A picture of that carcass can be seen here.
So far, no footage of the animals has emerged, nor any stills. And I must say Mr. Kirk's conclusion comes of as more than a little bit lame:
If these are whales, moose, otters or other known creatures then they are subtypes that no one has ever seen before.
All this excitment over a swimming moose?
In any case, more information here.
And if that wasn't enough cryptozoology for one Sunday morning, here's Darren Naish's latest on the Ozenkadnook Tiger.
