A monster has been reported from this Canadian lake, but the reports have been treated with unwarranted contempt. The monster has also been observed in the Ashuapmouchouan River, which flows into the lake. A 1978 sighting in the river estimated its length at 50'-60'. The local Ouiatchoua and Montagnais Indians believe in the creature, but do not like to talk about it for fear of unmerited white ridicule. G. Goguon, Director of the Saint-Felicien Zoo, has also expressed a belief that something unusual may lurk in the waters.
