BC fishery officers have discovered and destroyed the nest, eggs, and hatchlings of a breeding pair of plesiosaurs on the south shore of Lake Okanagan. "The plesiosaur is a reptile that can grow to a length of 30 metres. Just think what this would do to the tourist industry in this region if these beasts were allowed to breed indiscriminately!" their official news release is quoted as saying.
An official, who did not wish to be named, joked that BC Fisheries will not rest until every egg in the area has been located, even if it takes them well beyond the Easter weekend.

It's about time!

You two can joke, but this is no laughing matter. Shame! These beasts can foul the beaches!

Protects them from high tides and when the big wave hits. Pretty smart idea i would say.

Ogopogo is a really cool myth and does wonder for tourism in the Okanagan

Say anyone visit Kelowna recently, we have Canada's first Carl's JR in Kelowna

There are some very real concerns about the health of killer whales in Lake Okanagon.

Do you see any seals there. No. That is why. Food source has been depleted. Guess the Govt will have to bring them in from the coast.

Plesiosaurs are an endangered species - look what happened to the Loch Ness monster - it's no longer around. We MUST protect our dinosaurs.

That's usually my M.O. but I wasn't in the Army. Guess it's just instinctual.

If we had such a thing in Kelowna I know of a few children I would supply bathing suits for
to have them go swimming. It is now past noon on April first

Alas, the "quality" of the Photoshop spoiled the joke before ol' Ski did. LOL!

The real joke was on me. Plesiosaurs give birth to live young.
