Whoa, Nessie: Wisconsin Wants Loch Ness Monster Sculpture Removed from River

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants to capture the famed Loch Ness Monster, spotted in a local river!

Actually, it's only a metal sculpture of the Scottish lake creature, dubbed "Nessie" by kilt-wearing locals. A spokesperson for the Department of Natural Resources has said that the large "guerrilla art" sculpture that was placed in the Chippewa River near Eau Claire anonymously must be removed. The eye-catching art work is illegally blocking the waterway and is a potential hazard to boats traveling the river for both commerce and leisure.

The creative sculpture does have a potential home, however. Home improvement retail outlet Menards has offered the artwork a new, safer location, much brighter than the murky depths of the mighty Loch Ness. The store has offered the metal monster the use of one of its many on-site retention ponds and fountains, which is sure to bring in curious on-lookers hoping to catch a glimpse of the mysterious beast.

Hmmm...wonder if this has anything to do with those strange booming noises heard nearby?
