A Nessie hunter believes he has uncovered the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster – and she has a lot in common with the Australian kangaroo.
Despite evidence to suggest Nessie is nothing more than a giant eel , one man still believes she exists, is reproducing and carrying her young like a kangaroo – and he is determined to hunt her down.
Self-proclaimed doctor of forensics, Vladi S. PeCan contacted Daily Star Online to say he proposes to “help catch, photograph and take DNA samples of Nessie.”
“I can point out where, when, how she can be seen and how to attract her,” he said. “I have studied her image and methods of reproduction and have worked out females have a bag for carrying the offspring on the abdomen.”
The Nessie hunter added he has also figured out what equipment, facilities and top secret plans are is needed to carry out a covert operation to find the mythical Scottish beast.
This includes “video equipment for three locations, and bait to lure the monster” alongside a team of specialists to work with.
He says he is determined for search for Nessie to become a “professional investigation” and by the end of the study should be able to report detailed findings.
The study will provide answers to “how many monsters live in the lake, their age, what they eat” as well as proving his theory female Nessie’s have a “bag on the abdomen for offspring”.
Vladi added that he did not know how much money such an extensive investigation would cost, but is hopeful it can be achieved.
Aquatic animals are not known to carry offspring in pouches.
Marsupials such as kangaroos, wallabies, possums and koalas, native to Australasia are the only animals known to science which carry babies in pouches.
The Nessie hunter’s announcement comes just months after scientists published some explosive findings about the Loch Ness Monster following a year-long study.
Sightings of the mythical dinosaur-like beast have baffled people for hundreds of years, but the results of the latest investigation proved once again to be a massive anticlimax.
Researchers from the University of Otago, in New Zealand, collected 250 water samples from the depths of the 227m deep loch.
They analysed the animal matter they found there: such as fur, feathers, skin, scales and poo.
Then in September it was revealed Nessie was most likely to be a massive eel.
Professor Neil Gemmell, who led the study, told a packed conference:” I don’t think the plesiosaur idea holds up based on the data that we have obtained.
“There are 500 million different [gene] sequences that they have discovered.
“They’ve compared them to a whole lot of other living things.”
Instead he suggested Nessie sighting are most likely the result of the fresh water loch’s large eel population tricking day-trippers to the scenic loch.
Yet despite such evidence to the contrary it hasn’t stopped Nessie hunters like Vladi believing the truth is still out there.
