The last thing Darlene Thompkins expected to see on her holiday was something she referred to as the ‘Ootsa Lake monster’.
Thompkins who is holidaying in Burns Lake with her family from Edmonton, said she named the mysterious sighting in Ootsa Lake a monster because she didn’t know what else to call it.
Thompkins and her daughter were wading in the water near the Ootsa Lake spillway last week, while her husband George sat on the shore.
“A plane flew over and we watched that go by, it looked like the pilot was doing some sort of training exercise, then when we looked back down there was a big wave in the water,” she said.
Thompkins said the wave struck her as being unusual at the time so she watched the large ripple in the water about eight to 10 metres from where she and her daughter we standing.
Thompkins then said she and her daughter saw a head appear out of the water.
“It looked like a huge snake head ,,, and it was a dark grey colour,” she said.
