DEADLY BEAST TERRIFIES LOCALS, STUDENTS ALIKE
A DEADLY SEA CREATURE sighted by townspeople in a popular local swimming hole has locals and students fearing for their lives.
The fabulous beast, previously confined to only to legend, was seen by a number of credible eyewitnesses this week. The savage water serpent's domain, known to students as "the Waterfall", is a picturesque collection of craggy rocks and frigid water where students and locals love to sun themselves and splash about.
The slimy, slithery serpent, though, has them thinking otherwise.
"I wouldn't swim there," student Catherine Leung said with a shiver. "That's scary."
But just what is this fearsome monster that swims with impunity through the once calm waters of small town Italy?
"It's a sea creature of unknown origins," student Ian Roeber explained. "Possibly prehistoric, and certainly reptilian. It has shimmering scales that reflect its dangerous nature, and fangs that would make a saber-tooth blush."
Roeber shuddered as he recollected the awesome size of the creature, strectching out his arms to their full length in an attempt to describe the scale of this powerful beast. "The townspeople have warned us not to swim there anymore," he added.
"I heard it was a viper," student Mary Shell told me. "And I'm not frightened," she stated with confidence. "But I'm not gonna swim there. I went to a different part of the river instead- but there was a dog carcass there, mostly eaten. It smelled really bad. I took a photo."
Are the whithered remains of man's best friend a sign that the powerful jaws of this scaly serpent have moved upstream, or is there more than one sea-snake lurking in the murky waters of Cagli? "If that's your interpretation," Schell shrugged.
