US Navy Captures Lake Michigan Monster


The US Navy captured a 140-foot monster in Lake Michigan on September 16 and a secret Pentagon photograph proves it!

The picture clearly shows a pair of Navy divers cautiously approaching the beast just minutes after it was immobilized in a gigantic steel net.

And while it is not yet known what the Navy plans to do with the monster, sources say that every effort will be made to keep it alive while researchers try to figure out what it is, how it got into Lake Michigan and if there are more like it.

“I don’t want to sound like a gawking tourist but the Loch Ness monster is nothing, and I do mean nothing, compared to this, “declared marine biologist Richard Clarke, who cited Pentagon sources and documents when he blew the lid off the capture of the beast at a news conference in Washington, DC.

“The Navy spent six months trying to capture this thing,” he continued, “and the big question now is what the hell did they catch? The monster looks like a dinosaur but there are several important distinctions.

“For one thing, dinosaurs were exceedingly stupid but this lake monster apparently has an intelligence rivaling that of a dog or a horse. It also has lungs and gills, which enable it to breathe in or out of water at will.

“One of the more intriguing aspects of this case is why nobody has reported seeing the monster before, he added. “Then again, people may have seen it but were too embarrassed or afraid to talk.”

Pentagon and Navy spokesmen declined to discuss Clarke’s report, but in a puzzling concession to repeated and often angry questioning from newsmen, explained that they were unable to comment because “national security interests may be at stake.”

The expert himself said he got his information from Pentagon sources. According to the documents, Navy vessels sighted the monster while on a training mission in Lake Michigan late last spring. As a matter of routine, they scanned the area with sonar and confirmed the presence of “a large moving object, identity unknown.”

Portions of the report had been deleted by Pentagon censors before Clarke obtained a copy for himself. But the documents clearly stated that the Navy tracked the “object” for 72 hours before it surfaced three miles west of South Fox Island in the north central sector of the lake.

“Additional vessels and divers were dispatched from the Great Lakes Naval Training Center to continue tracking the creature and within six weeks, the Navy was secretly dragging an unspecified area of the lake with a massive steel net,” said Clarke.

“The monster eluded capture until September 16. My sources say it is now being held in an underwater cage while the Pentagon and Navy decide what to do with it.”

The monster weighs an estimated 35 tons and is said to be easting as much as a ton of raw fish and meat a day, said the expert. There was initially some concern that the creature would struggle free of the net.
But it calmed down considerably after Navy divers dosed it with massive quantities of a powerful animal tranquilizer and is now resting comfortable on the bottom of the lake.

“The monster’s head is as big as a station wagon and the sharp, white fangs in its mouth would seem to answer a lot of questions about its heritage and temperament, which are being described as ‘prehistoric and foul’,” said Dr. Clarke.

“The Pentagon is definitely trying to keep a lid on this,” he added. “But a story of this magnitude can’t be kept under wraps forever.”
