Somehow, a mythological creature, the Storsjoe monster, was put on Sweden's endangered species list. A watchdog group is investigating how this came
about. It came to light when it was noticed that a "business" man was refused permission to search for the creatures eggs to raise baby monsters.
The Storsjoe monster was first mentioned in print in 1635, when Mogens Pedersen took down a legend about two trolls who were boiling a mixture
in a large kettle on the shore of the lake. Having boiled the mixture for many years, the contents of the kettle began to wail and groan and then
there was a loud bang.
"A strange animal with a black serpentlike body and a catlike head jumped out of the kettle and disappeared into the lake."
