Japanese Filmmakers On ‘ChampQuest’ In Vermont

PORTLAND, Me. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The jig may soon be up for a sneaky lake monster who’s been hiding in a Vermont lake for nearly 200 years.

That’s because a group of Japanese filmmakers are converging on Lake Champlain, Vermont, this weekend in hopes of snapping footage of “Champ,” a cousin to the Loch Ness Monster that supposedly resides in the lake.

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, who is helping the filmmakers on what is being called “ChampQuest,” says there have been Champ sightings since 1812 and the creature is invaribly described as a snake-like creature about 25 feet long and a horse’s head.

It won’t be easy to pin down Champ. Lake Champlain – which borders Vermont, New York and Quebec – is one of the biggest lakes in North America and is up to 400 feet deep. Plus, much of it is in relatively unexplored territory.

Still, Coleman believes the expedition could bring up some interesting findings since, he points out, “The Japanese are bringing the most updated cameras and sonar technology available.”
