Move over “Finding Bigfoot,” there's big money in finding Nessie, Scotland's Loch Ness Monster.
Last year a bumper crop of Loch Ness Monster sightings may lead to one creature hunter netting the £1,000 Best Nessie Sighting of the Year prize.
Nessie sightings had been scarce, and the prize hadn't been awarded since 2002.
“Nessie, it seems, has been in the wilderness but there were at least three sightings last year – two have been photographed and the third sounds plausible,” Campbell said.
The winner of the Best Nessie Sighting contest will be announced later this year by William Hill, a gambling bookmaker.
