- Swedes join hunt for Loch Ness monster
12: 46 PM AEST January 5
A Swedish search team plans to use a net to capture the legendary Loch
Ness monster, the fabled creature which many believe possibly lives in the
depths of one of Scotland's deepest lakes.
Jan Sundberg, of the Global Underwater Search Team, said Operation Clean
Sweep would begin in the lake on March 20, and was confident his
four-strong crew would find any large creatures living in the loch.
They will place a funnel-shaped net measuring five metres by seven metres
in the loch in the hope of trapping any Nessie-like creatures swimming in
Sundberg said that if this did indeed happen, a scientist from an unnamed
British university would be on hand to take DNA samples before the animal
was released unharmed back into the waters.
