'Remains' of Loch Ness monster wash ashore in Scotland
LOCH NESS, Scotland - Strange “dinosaur-like remains” that supposedly washed ashore on the banks of Loch Ness in Scotland this week have had the web wondering whether the mythical monster is more than myth.
On Wednesday, an animal adoption organization, Help2Rehome Scotland, posted images of what appeared to be animal remains to Facebook after a dogwalker happened upon them while walking near the lake.
“Has Nessy been found? Or someone playing a fascinating prank,” the group said in the post.
The internet quickly erupted with speculation as to whether or not the remains were real. Cryptozoologists have been actively searching for the creature since it first was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Numerous hoaxes have been carried out over the years, so it’s no wonder people are quick to question the legitimacy of the discovery.
Some were optimistic.

Others, not so much.
After the debate reached its climax on Facebook, Help2Rehome Scotland posted that the remains were actually a prop used in the filming of a TV show.
False alarm. Loch ness monster not confirmed. Everyone can hold onto their $3.50 for at least a little bit longer.
