Ducks are disappearing, pet owners are nervous, and anglers are excited at England's Stonebow Washlands. A mystery predator dubbed the "Lough Ness Monster" has been devouring waterfowl at the lake near Loughborough. Some believe the beast is a catfish, a pike, or even a mink. One witness says she saw a frantically flapping duck dragged underwater by a creature that returned to seize its companion just a couple of minutes later.

"The number of ducks at Stonebow Washlands has been going down, and now we know why," a local wildlife official told the Telegraph. “It’s pretty scary. Whatever it is, it’s got to be a monster to take a fully grown duck." Schoolchildren and pet owners have been advised to steer clear of the lake, but local authorities say they have no plans to try to hunt the beast down.
