Dragon prowling waters of Alaska

Two videos. Two different areas and sightings.

An official with the Alaska Bureau of Land Management filmed a perplexing anomaly in the state's Chena River that has left viewers scratching their heads.

Craig McCaa was documenting the changing of the seasons at the popular rafting and fishing destination when he spotted a puzzling 12 to 15-foot-long oddity seemingly swimming in the river.

Unable to determine what the "strange thing" was, McCaa posted the video to the Alaska BLM Facebook page, leading to thousands of people watching the footage and offering their opinions.

McCaa theorized that the anomaly could be a piece of ice-covered rope, although he noted that other observers have proposed possibilities ranging from the prosaic, such as a giant sturgeon, to the fantastic, including the always-tantalizing 'sea monster.'

How one interprets the video likely depends on whether they think the anomalous object is moving on its own or simply being swayed by the force of the river.

A perplexing piece of footage purportedly captured by tourists visiting Alaska has left viewers baffled and wondering if it could be a sea creature of some kind.

The video begins with the tourists marveling at a glacier collapsing in front of them and then they seem to notice a series of unexplained dark objects protruding from the water nearby.

An additional three 'humps' pop up a few feet away from the first group of objects, suggesting that the entire collection is part of one larger body.

However, what may lie beneath the surface is open to speculation with some imagining fantastic possibility like a dragon and others theorizing that it is probably a native creature being mistaken for something 'out of this world.'

And, as can be expected, more cynical observers argue that the video is outright fake.

Unfortunately, aside from the alleged backstory, little else is known about the footage, including when it was taken or where in Alaska the incident happened.

Coming so soon after a more robust 'creature' sighting in Alaska made headlines around the world, the chances that this could be a clever hoax designed to capitalize on that story cannot be discounted.

I saw the first video a few days ago and believe it to be a rope or something with debris in spots moving in the current. I've seen things like that before.

The second video looks fake. If you notice the wake you will see that it comes from the rear hump. Wakes come from the front where the water is being pushed, not the rear. I think the rear hump is the original and the front two are duplicates. The same goes for the dorsal fins.

I'm with Kreeper re: the first video.

Anyone remember this?



“Being at least passingly familiar with ice and how frozen objects behave in water (I live in Finland), I couldn't help but be intrigued by this,” McKeown told Discovery News. “The movement was the most fascinating aspect, but when I realized how quickly the water was flowing I figured that could very well cause that effect on a flexible object trapped there.”

This behavior is completely consistent with an ice-caked fishing net or piece of cloth caught on an underwater branch or rock — and completely inconsistent with a living animal. With this new information it seems most likely that the video was not a hoax after all: Kjerúlf happened to notice a natural, inanimate object in the water and decided to videotape it. Other people later called it a mysterious creature, elevating an interesting but natural phenomenon to a monster of Icelandic legend.

Comment on the Iceland video:

Quote:Bjarmi925 months ago:

It's a rope tied to a rock, thrown in the river, now full of sea-weed and the current of the river is pushing agains it, making it swerve like that. I'm Icelandic and it breaks my heart to know this :(

The sea monster humps are definitely fake. The humps are identical both in appearance and movement. It's one cloned hump. Also what Kreeper pointed out about the wake. Looks to me the original could be a seal swimming and diving. 13.gif

Tis true. In fact, one just lost the US Presidential election.
