From the Canadian office of the Center for Fortean Zoology, we are told:
“BC has it’s own version of the Creature from the black lagoon—or does it? Back in August of 1972, the Victoria Daily Times reported that two local teens claimed to have been chased from the beach at Thetis lake near Victoria, British Columbia. The attacker? A 5 foot tall, 120 pound silver scaled humanoid with sharp fins on his head. On August 19, 1972, the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) launched an investigation after teenage boys, 16-year old Robin Flewellyn and 17-year old Gordon Pike, claimed to have been attacked by the creature.”
So, what’s the truth of the strange affair? Here’s the full story…

Loren talked about newer sightings of this creature here on Cryptomundo earlier this year: 21st Century Thetis Lake Monster Encounters?
