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."

What a hoot.

"Although about 500 people claim to have seen the monster, described by one purported witness as a snakelike animal with a dog's head and fins on its neck, it hasn't been captured on camera. With such vague evidence of its existence, the ombudsman last week asked the Jaemtland county administrative board to send documents that led to its 1986 decision. The issue came to the ombudsman's attention by a man who was denied permission to search for the monster's eggs. "

I did a search and came up with the following picture and a list of other sea monsters out there.
