Swamp monster of Berwick, La.: you're no Mobile Leprechaun

Posted By on Fri, Dec 10, 2010 at 1:17 PM

It was either a slow news day in Baton Rouge, or the city's NBC affiliate, WVLA-TV, has just broadcast a two-minute segment that will win reporter Tyler Gamble a Peabody Award. Behold the Swamp Monster of Berwick, La.:

A viewer (who for some strange reason wished to remain anonymous) says he found the above image on the memory card of a deer camera mounted in the woods, which was all WVLA needed to take it to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for possible identification. (Video here.)

As far as mysterious-creature scoops go, however, this one pales in comparison to the Leprechaun of Mobile, Ala. — which was reported on by Scott Walker of WDSU-TV way back when he worked in Mobile. (Please note the leprechaun video is now up to 16,865,557 viewings.):
