Lake Monster of Rock Lake is ROCKY
Very similar to Loc Ness Monster.
Long muscular neck, topped with a large horse like head with serpentine features.
An early 'recorded ' encounter with the Monster was in 1887 by Edward McKenzie and D.W. Seybert, local boys that grew up in Lake Mills.
Although that was the first recorded encounter, it was not the first - now was it the last.
According to Lake Mills historian, Mary Wilson ' Many people reported that they saw the monster raise its head from the waters. Its presense was a great concern for the local
residents. It would appear every few years and was recorded in our history by early citizens of great integrity and position in the community.'
These type of lake creatures are reported around the world and seem to carry the same identifying characteristics.
I have my own theory on them , of which, I will report later in this article.
Another Lake Monster in Wisconsin is the Sturgeon Bay Monster residing in Lake Michigan, about 120 miles north of Rock Lake.
Even the Capital of Wisconsin, Madison, has their own lake monster. Madison is only forty miles from Lake Mills. Their dragon like creature was seen in 1917 by a fisherman,
who described it as 'snake like'. Earlier seen in 1897 , the monster was estimated to be twenty feet long. Of couse, though in Lake Mendota, they have captured sturgeons
that were a record breaking twenty five feet in length.
The Native American Indians have a legend on them, stating that the Lake Monsters were 'Spirit Guardians' placed there to protect the 'rock tepees' and the sacred graves of
the foreign shamans.
The Indians call this spirit guardian, BICHI BICHI and would sacrifice dogs to it, binding their legs and jaws and throwing them into the water.
The Menomonie Indians tell the story of MICHIBISSY, a deadly sea monster installed by the ancient miners to guard the waters around Isle Royale in the Upper Great Lakes
region for the protection of its rich copper deposits. The Michibissy is also represented as the spiritual energies of the dead marine men who sank back into the sea whence
they came. Coincidentally A great sea guardian protects the cone shaped stone pyramid in the Greek myth of CADMUS .

Eye witness accounts and depictions of sea serpents have come down
to us from throughout history. In some of these cases, the creature could
well have had a large portion of its body underwater (really a plesiosaur
form rather than a serpent form). The very first recorded sea serpent
observation was made by Sargon II on a Mediterranean voyage to Cyprus
at about 720 BC – 705 BC. This cryptid sighting seems to be
memorialized by a very interesting frieze made during the Assyrian
domination of Phoenicia (late 8th century BC). It shows Phoenician
longboats loading up lumber. Notice the sea serpent with its neck upright
in the background up top. Its large size can be judged by the sea turtle
depicted just in front of it. Another meaning of the serpent and the turtle
could represent the serpent race going to Turtle Island (N. America)
