Madison's Lake Monster
Does a monster lurk in the murky waters of Lake Mendota? There have been no sightings since the late 1940's, but accounts of the Lake Mendota monster were reported on by the Wisconsin State Journal, The Capital Times, The New North, and the Racine Daily Journal. It was described as a giant fish-like serpent 25-30 feet long with a head ten inches wide, and a tail studded with horns. The creature was nicknamed "Bozho" after an Ojibwe folk hero, Winnebozho.
