The Loch Ness Monster of the Vosges
The small French town of Xertigny, in the Vosges Mountains, thinks it may have its own Loch Ness Monster. Though instead of being a sea serpent, it's a crocodile, and it's in a pond instead of a loch.
The village of Xertigny, which has 3,000 inhabitants, has been stunned by the unexplained sightings and sightseers have gathered by the water to follow the hunt. A chicken has been left by the water to attract the animal but has so far remained unscathed and local authorities are considering draining the pool.
"We have been around the pond several times and you can't really say if anything is there," said Bruno Aime, whose anglers' association had used a sonar device to investigate the pool.
