LEGEND

IN OWENS MARINA IN ST. CLAIR MICHIGAN, IT IS KNOWN THAT A DOG WHO
ONCE HAD HIS BODY COMPLETELY CHOPPED UP IN
A PROPELLER OF A MAFIA GANGSTER
WAS REINCARNATED INTO A SEA MONSTER.
THE STORY WARNED BOAT OWNERS WHO
WERE CARELESS WITH THEIR DOGS THAT IF
THEY DID NOT KEEP A CONSTANT EYE
ON THEIR BELOVED PETS WHILE ON THE BOAT, THE SEA MONSTER WOULD ATTAC
AND KILL NOT ONLY THEIR PETS, BUT ALSO THE WHOLE FAMILY. SOME EVEN
BELIEVED THAT THE BOAT ITSELF WOULD BE CONSUMED AND WOULD NEVER
BE FOUND AGAIN. FURTHERMORE, THE SEA MONSTER WOULD DO HIS DIRTY WOR
WITHOUT EVEN LEAVING A TRACE OF SUSPECT AND EVEN THE COAST GUARD WAS
KNOWN TO FEAR HIM.
