Recently a 6-foot 9-inch sturgeon washed up on the shore of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont.

Anyone interested in cryptozoology will know that Lake Champlain is said to be home to the lake monster Champ. Some people think that sturgeon can explain sightings of Champ and other lake monsters, but I don't think that is the case.
