Swedish Lake Monster News

Maybe some of you have heard of Storsjo, the lake monster that supposedly inhabits Lake Storsjon in Sweden.

Well, for years now, Storsjo has been under protection by being on the endangered species list. A list normally used for known animals that are thought to be endanger of becoming extinct.

Not in this case. See, Storsjo's existence has never been scientifically proven. Well, this question about it's existence has prompted Swedish officials to remove the creature from the endangered species list.

Being on that list, it was illegal for a anyone to actively go out and hunt the creature. That protection no longer exists.

Of course, I understand this decision. The creature's existence hasn't been proven yet, so why protect something that may not be there. However, I don't think you can make that argument to the numerous people who have sighted something in the lake.
