Locals and tourists in the Israeli town of Kiryat Yam have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales.

In my opinion, this sounds like a hoax, but what if it's true? Are there any animals around Isreal that look like mermaids? Any seals or anything like that? If anyone knows, please post something about it.

I'm guessing it was some Palestinian girl with cleaver outfit and a plan to get the heck out and go to to Europe or America...

If it is a good hoax then that rewards money would be claimed and gone by now - if the girl has made up an outfit then how hard would it be to arrange for a couple of photos to be taken?

It's a nice angle on the tourists though - the town cannot be held responsible if it does turn out to be a hoax and it's in their interests to keep it going as long as possible.

I hope a picture does come out. It will be the new Loch Ness.

It sounds like a hoax. It sounds like it's too good to be true. I would agree that it's kind of a silly story to bring about tourism there.
