"Loch Ness Monster" found in western Wisconsin river


EAU CLAIRE (WKOW) -- Some unique artwork found its way into a river in western Wisconsin, but it may not be there for long.

A sculpture of the famed Loch Ness Monster is in the Chippewa River in Eau Claire.

The sculpture is made out of concrete and about the size of a canoe.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says the artwork poses a danger and whoever put it in the river needs to remove it. 

"If it were partially hidden by higher water, it could punch a hole in the side of a canoe, or you know, cause other problems," said DNR warden Ed Culhane.

The DNR says it will wait a few days and if the sculpture isn't out of the river, wardens will remove it.
