A cellphone video of a “creature” that appears to be swimming in Lake Champlain is causing a stir in the North Country.

According to the Burlington Free Press newspaper, Burlington resident Eric Olsen, 37, shot video with his cell-phone camera at sunrise Sunday that shows an object moving across the mouth of a small cover near Oakledge Park. The video can be viewed on YouTube by clicking HERE.

It is creating renewed discussion about “Champ,” the lake’s elusive, legendary monster.

The object appears to raise its “head” a foot or more above the water’s surface, the Free Press notes. At other times a portion of what appears to be a torso also can been seen.

“I was just filming the water when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move, and I turned toward it and tried to zoom in on it,” Olsen, a Web site developer and musician, told the Free Press.
