Nessie hunters have been left scratching their heads after a dog walker found what appears to be the remains of the legendary ‘monster’ washed up on a beach.
These grizzly remains were found on the shore of Loch Ness in Scotland, blocked off by police tape.
The scene appears to be a highly elaborate prank by someone who has managed to create a lifelike skeleton frame and organs of the legendary beast, complete with sharp-toothed skull.
The images were posted on Facebook by animal charity Help2Rehome Scotland – who asked the public whether they believed the remains were the real deal.
Responses were split between the serious Nessie fans and those who saw it as a bit of fun.
