Lake Monsters: Ogopogo!

Ogo

A Canadian lake monster, Ogopogo rules over lake Okanagan. It stands out among other more peaceful lake monsters because of its reputation as a bloodthirsty killer.
It is often described as a many-humped, serpent-like creature with horns.

It is believed that the beast has its roots in native Canadian Indian legends of a monster called N’ha-a-itk,that would demand a live sacrifice from travelers for safe passage across Lake Okanagan. Hundreds of years ago, whenever Indians would venture into the lake, they brought chickens or other small animals to kill and drop into the water to assure a safe journey.
