Loch Ness Tooth Update
There's already quite a lengthy thread about the Loch Ness Monster Tooth
in the forum
, but I don't think anyone has yet linked to this recent press release
in which radio host Rob McConnell exposes the 'tooth' as "nothing more than an antler from a roe muntjac deer". The story was that two American college students supposedly found the tooth lodged in the carcass of a deer while they were visiting Loch Ness. A Scottish warden subsequently took the tooth from them. In reality, the entire story was part of a publicity stunt to promote Steve Alten's new book, The Loch
(as most people in the forum had already figured out).
