Loch Ness Monster evicted from Chippewa River


 Some unique artwork finds its way into the Chippewa River, but it may not be there for long.

On Monday, the DNR was notified a sculpture of the famed Loch Ness monster was put in the Chippewa River.  The sculpture, which is made out of concrete and about the size of a canoe, is north of the Madison Street bridge.  The DNR 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," says Ed Culhane, with the Wisconsin DNR.

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