Loch Ness monster In VT? Researchers claim incredible discovery in Lake Champlain

Amateur zoologists in Vermont claim they have new proof of Champ, a distant cousin of the Loch Ness Monster said to inhabit the waters of Lake Champlain.

As the Daily Mail notes, the researchers used a DolphinEar hydrophone system to record loud clicking noises that they assert are the echolocation of the monster. Cryptozoologists Katy Elizabeth and Dennis Hall made the recording in July, near a section of the lake known as Scotch Bonnet.
