Is this the Loch Ness Monster? Veteran beast hunter says he was left ‘dumbfounded’ by hump spotted on a webcam trained on the Scottish lake

An experienced animal hunter says he is ‘stunned’ as a Loch Ness-trained webcam has allegedly captured a new sighting of the famous monster.

The footage, taken on June 12 in the space of around three minutes, was captured by a webcam at the Clansman Hotel on the lakeside and appears to show something moving just beneath the surface of the Scottish loch.

Eoin O’Faodhagain was watching the water via livestream from his home in Ireland when he noticed a mysterious lump emerging from Loch Ness at its northern end.

He claims to have noticed a “jet black anomaly slowly appearing on the surface of the lake, less than a hundred yards from the shoreline.”

The Nessie hunter said: ‘I was a bit stunned that it didn’t dissolve into nothing, but just kept getting clearer and blacker.’

The experienced Nessie hunter estimates that the bump on the surface was up to three meters long.

Mr O’Faodhagain claims the unknown object must be alive because it ‘moved very slowly and in a controlled manner and disappeared without causing any further disturbance.’

The 59-year-old said: “This object has none of the characteristics of seals or otters,” he said.

‘The object moves like a fish or an eel would bend their body more.

“It’s very hard to say it’s definitely Nessie, but it’s easy to say what it’s not.

“And if you exclude the known creatures that inhabit Loch Ness, what are you left with?”

It was, he said, an “inexplicable anomaly.”

Alleged sightings of the Loch Ness Monster have captured people’s imaginations for centuries. The earliest sighting of Nessie dates back to the 7th century.

The mysterious beast first caught the world’s attention when a sighting of the monster was published in The Inverness Courier in May 1933. A year later, the supposed first photograph of Nessie was taken by a London surgeon named Robert Kenneth Wilson.

The most famous photo of Nessie was taken by a London surgeon named Robert Kenneth Wilson and was published in the Daily Mail in April 1934 and for sixty years many people took it as proof of the monster's existence.

The photo supposedly showed the creature’s head and neck.

It was published in the Daily Mail in April 1934 and for sixty years many people took it as proof of the monster’s existence. However, by the 1990s, most experts concluded that the photo was part of an elaborate hoax.

Sightings of the amphibious creature continue to this day. Over the years, Mr O’Faodhagain has collected several entries in the official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register.

But new restrictions on webcam observations have kept his recent contributions low profile.
