SEA SERPENT HUNT

Fortean Times - - Strange Days -

A po­lice pa­trol armed with ma­chine guns and dy­na­mite hunted a sea serpent in Rio de Janeiro’s Gua­n­abara Bay on 11 Fe­bru­ary 1958. Hun­dreds of peo­ple claimed to have seen the mon­ster, which had the neck of a gi­raffe, humps on its back and a long tail. A fish­er­man de­scribed it as a huge green­ish serpent with a head “as big as a bar­rel”. (Syd­ney) D.Tele­graph, 12 Feb 1958.
