    I just saw this on the news. Someone this morning captured on video some kind of very large animal/fish in Pohenegamook Lake, in eastern Quebec near the U.S. state of Maine, which has a legendary monster, Ponik.

    The footage was taken this morning and posted by that person on Facebook here. Observers are saying it's likely a sturgeon, but it looks huge!

    There's a 1977 news clip of the supposed sited creature posted here, but I can't view it because it requires old plugins:

    I found this videoclip posted yesterday (26).



    It had some info in French added, and since I cant read French I used google-translate and got this;
    It seems, as they say, that this was a staged and fabricated "sighting". Maybe someone here reads French and can translate it better.

    I cant find any more info in english about a resent sighting in Pohénégamook , and the Facebook-link you posted is dead. Maybe this clip isn't the one you are referring to, but I cant find any other from Pohénégamook.

    PS: I found these links though, and it seems that this clip was a marketing-stunt for the town. http://www.msn.com/fr-ca/actualites...-de-pohénégamook-coup-de-marketing/ar-BBkg9mi

    Googletranslate;
    It was a pretty good video-clip though - regardless. :)

    Thanks for this Pollux.

    And yes the facebook video is the one you posted.

    The article doesn't explain how it was staged, but that it was, and the google translation is pretty accurate.

    Which likely means it wasn't a huge sturgeon (a little "miracle" in itself), but probably some fake monster set-up.

    Yeah, but it could very well have been a sturgeon-sighting. They can get pretty big, so it wouldn't have been an impossible sighting per se.

    Bugs Bunny is not impressed.
