The Lake Windermere Monster: Possible Evidence of "Bownessie" Emerges

The Loch Ness Monster isn’t the only mythical beast living in Europe.  Lake Windermere near Bowness in Cumbria is home to another “monster” that has stirred local legend for years.  Nicknamed Bow-nessie, she shares with her counterpart in Loch Ness a propensity for elusiveness.  And while sightings happen, evidence is rarely gathered.

All of that changed last Friday when Tom Pickles, 24, said an animal approximately the size of three cars cruised across the lake before his very eyes as he was kayaking.
