A Sea Serpent Story ... Of Course!

Buffalo Courier

The Sea Serpent Once More.

Halifax, Sept. 1 – A monstrous sea serpent

measuring from seventy to one hundred

feet in length with a body as large

around as a barrel and a head about

the size of a cask was seen off Weriginish

coast by a boat’s crew out on a mackerel

fishing excursion recently.  The men were 100

yards from the serpent and saw it plainly.  As

it moved along it made waves like a steamer.

Thirty feet of its tail were exposed when it 

dove, so that its character as a serpent is 

regarded as established.
