Loch Ness Monster evicted from Chippewa River

Posted:
EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) -

 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.
