8-meter long Sea Serpent seen in Cape Breton
Cape Breton Lobster Fisherman Follows 'Sea Monster' ( The photos below may shock you ) 10 years ago, about this time, there's was a fish story making the rounds here. Lobster fisherman Wallace Cartwright of Alder Point, Cape Breton County, claims he saw a "sea monster" recently and the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History believes him. "We had just hauled into the cove south of the light (house) in Point Aconi, in the direction of my traps," Mr. Cartwright said Tuesday. "Then I thought I saw a big log in the water. I turned to my buddy and said, 'Geez, that would be a dandy thing to run into.' It was a pretty big stick. "Then I saw a head on it, like a sea turtle, and it came about a foot up out of the water." He said the creature's snake-like body was about eight metres long, smooth and brownish. When it saw the boat approaching, it quickly submerged, surfacing again two minutes later about 60 metres away. At first Mr. Cartwright was wary of getting close to the creature. "God knows, that thing might have been able to jump out of the water, and I'm sure it could have swallowed you whole, I'm sure," he said.
