HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. –A man from Mecklenburg County on Sunday said he saw a “dinosaur-like creature”.
35-year-old B.T., a salesman who provided a full name but asked to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News that he was at Lake Norman on a boat with his friends when the animal showed up on Saturday morning.
“I was on a boat with my friends,” he said. “We were near the lakes main channel when we saw something splashing around in the water.”
He described the alleged creature as a 10-feet-long dinosaur reminiscent of the mythical Loch Ness monster. He added that the animal was visible for about 1 minute before disappearing back into the water. There were no photographs or videos submitted with the report.
In 2016, a man from the same area reported seeing a reptilian being swimming at Lake Norman.
In 2015, a man claiming to be a park ranger told Cryptozoology News he had seen “something that looked like a dinosaur” eating a duck at the same lake.
Reports of lake monsters are rare.
In 2014, a Canadian man released a series of photographs containing what he claimed to be the Opogogo monster.
The same year, a park ranger at Lake Tele, Republic of Congo, said he had spotted a dinosaur-like monster and was able to watch it for over 5 minutes.
Lake Norman, fed by the Catawba River, was created in 1964 and is currently the largest artificial body of fresh water in the Taar Heel State.
