While searching on the computer for sea monsters, two peculiar creatures caught my attention, Bessie and Pressie.
Apparently, Bessie inhabits Lake Erie, while Pressie resides in Lake Superior.
My questions are:
Are there any recent sightings of these creatures?
Are there any known creatures associated with Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Ontario? (In my opinion, it would seem odd that there wouldn’t be anything swimming in such a gargantuan body of fresh water.)
Thanks for you help answering my questions.
It was first sighted off Flowerpot Island in 1948. According to a report in the Owen Sound Sun Times, dated July 23, 1948..... "While men yelled and one woman fainted aboard the City of Detroit III, a Detroit and Cleveland Navigation Co., liner, a sea serpent slithered through Georgian Bay. That was the report of an eyewitness, Miss Bess Munroe of Michigan, the ship's social hostess. Miss Munroe's report of a 60-foot green and purple scale monster with a huge horned head, was confirmed by more than a dozen passengers and several of the ship's crew. The 'thing' was sighted by the travellers as the ship was entering the bay near Flowerpot Island. It came within 500 feet of the ship and remained in sight for approximately 15 minutes. It then disappeared in the fog and rain. "I've sailed the Great Lakes for many years," said the captain, "and have yet to see any monster. However, some of the informants in this case have always been persons of sound judgment and character." When the news of the sighting reached Tobermory, one local old timer was heard to comment "I am sure this 'spirit' came from a bottle"!
