THE LATEST MONSTER
SWEDISH ADDITION TO THE TRIBE
From our own correspondent
STOCKHOLM, Jan 3
According to an informant of the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, a cousin or other relative of the Loch Ness "monster" seems to have found its way into a Swedish inland lake in the Province of Ostergotland.
For some years during the summer months "a strange animal has been swimming about in the lake." Last summer this observer saw it at a distance of only 350ft. "Its head was raised above the surface of the water and had something horsy about it." The creature "might have been about 35ft. long, but was apparently very shy, as it hurriedly disappeared." The observer adds that other people in the district have seen the "monster," and have been much scared by it.
Its appearance during the winter months has not been reported, and as the Swedish lake is then presumably frozen over its presence in it is evidently a seasonal affair. It has not been overlooked here that a correspondent to The Times put forward the suggestion that the Scottish "monster" has obviously taken the lake for the season.
