Virtual Vermonter - Champ

Scotland isn’t the only spot in the world laying claim to big monsters in their waters. Sitting in a basin between Vermont and New York, Lake Champlain has been rumored to be monster-infested for hundreds of years. Claims and sightings go back to Samuel de Champlain (allegedly) and the Iroquois and Abenaki Indians. The Abenaki even had a name for it: “Tatoskok.” The monster is now simply referred to as Champ, and its rumored existence has become such a given that both Vermont and New York have declared the creature a protected species.
