Life is full of subtle pleasures: a bracing autumn breeze, the intoxicating aroma of braised parsnips, and, of course, the occasional Ogopogo sighting. This footage was shot on November 2 at Okanagan Lake in British Columbia. Explains Global BC:

Two weeks ago, West Kelowna resident Richard Huls said he captured video of something in the water.

"It proves something is down there. Whether it's Ogopogo or not, it is a different story but there is something at least down there," Huls said.

"It was not a wave, just a darker colour. The size and the fact that they were not parallel with the waves made me think it had to be something else," he said.

The video has attracted the requisite poo-pooing (lake thermodynamics, waves and stuff) from the scientific community, but some Ogopogo news > no Ogopogo news. And I've said it once and I'll say it again: Canadian cryptids are the goddamn gold standard of unknown beasts. The Philippines comes in a close second.
