Most of us grew up hearing stories of regional horrors, myths and urban legends. If you grew up in West Virginia or Ohio, you no doubt heard all about the Moth Man. If you grew up in the Pacific Northwest, tales of Bigfoot filled your bedtime story hour. And if you grew up in Utah, you are all aware of the dreaded Bear Lake Monster.
The remains of some sort of creature, pictured in this article, have allegedly washed ashore at Bear Lake in Utah. A couple were supposedly out for a walk, when they were hit with a very putrid smell. One hundred yards later, they came upon the carcass in question, and they believe it is the carcass of the horrid “Bear Lake Monster.”
Utah State Wildlife officials were allegedly called in to investigate and they are said to believe that the remains are those of some sort of large sea mammal thought to be extinct for many years.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources came out a couple of days after this story broke and claimed that it was fabricated.
But isn’t that what you’d expect them to say?
What do you think? Is this story true? Or is it just another elaborate internet hoax?
