Police tried to protect Nessie from hunters in 1938.

A letter from 1938 has been found in the National Archives of Scotland in which the Inverness County police chief calls for the voluntary protection of the Loch Ness monster.  The police believed the creature existed and that its preservation was "desirable", but were uncertain of their authority to protect it.  The letter was prompted by the intentions of monster hunters from London who said they were making a special harpoon gun to capture it.

Of course, lake monsters are a Big MalarkeyWhy would anyone go to so much trouble to capture one?
