I saw on Cryptomundo today that there is a alleged Ogopogo carcass was found, and is now going through DNA testing.

Kelowna, British Columbia’s Daily Courier is reporting two scientists have agreed to analyze the remains of a mysterious-looking specimen found along the shore of Okanagan Lake.

A tissue sample of the creature will be sent to a researcher in Ontario for DNA testing, and the carcass itself will be examined by a scientist in Alberta.

The remains were found two weeks ago by Kelowna resident Dan Poppoff as he paddled his kayak near the far end of Lakeshore Road. For now, he’s still got the carcass, which measures more than a metre-long in his freezer at home.

Poppoff is reluctant to suggest the strange-looking carcass might be an example of an Ogopogo, the legendary inhabitants of Okanagan Lake. But he is interested in finding out just what it is. He contacted Arlene Gaal, a Kelowna woman who was written extensively on Ogopogo sightings over the years.

Gaal is making arrangements to send the tissue sample and carcass to the two researchers, who she declines to identify.

I don't have my hopes up at all. If you remember a few months ago the TV show MonsterQuest had also claimed to have found a Ogopogo carcass. Which turned out to be nothing more then a dead salmon. But one thing I did find when I looked up the news story was this picture of Ogopogo. I had never seen this one before. I guess it was taken in 1985. I would probably say that this is the best picture of it.

Has anyone ever seen this one before? Here is the article I found it on.

Dan Poppoff found the 1.2-metre-long carcass last month while he was kayaking in the lake, close to the B.C. Interior city of Kelowna.

1.3 meters is 51.181 inches / 12 inches = 4.265 feet

4.265 feet seems rather small for what is in that image.

so is it a baby one or something else altogether?

Here is a picture of the last "carcass" which was a dead salmon.

I have a feeling that it will also end up being a dead fish. I am not sure why, maybe there is some natural occurance going on in the lake where animals are not decomposing as they should. Which is creating these strange carcass.

Hopefully it turns out to be a baby Ogopogo or something! (Its sad that it died, but it would be providing concrete evidence of the Ogopogo's existence.

Ive never seen that picture you posted of the Ogopogo! Thanks for posting it!

I go to Kelowna every year in August for about two weeks and always keep my eye out for the Ogopogo, hopefully I spot something more then a couple odd waves this year!
